Unless arquillian can support running these adapter tests within an IDE, 
they need to stay.  In general, More often than not, I don't like the 
arquillian style we've enforced because it takes a lot longer to write 
tests, is often nearly impossible to do everything through a REST 
interface, and is often really hard to debug.  Maybe its just the types 
of things I'm testing.  Some of the tests should not have been ported to 
arquillian, or, at least shouldn't have been ported to using a REST 
interface for the entire test.
