Don't we need documentation before writing tests so that we know what
behavior to expect? Last time I checked, there was not much
documentation in handler.h. Also, how do you test an API on its own
without a storage engine behind it? It would be useful to have a
regression test framework for storage engines. The MySQL regression
test framework (mysql-test) is hardwired so that MyISAM and InnoDB get
most of the attention. Authors of new storage engines are out of luck.
