load testing for customBuild

Hi Laurel,

I think that you should be able to test the server's assembly of the  
modules and group information. Since this is pulled from information  
assembled by the server, you should be able to test it in a similar  
fashion as you are with the build generation.

Sorry I'm in a meeting at the moment, so hopefully this makes sense.  
Please let me know if I need to clarify.
