I just wrote a couple of tests using gtest,
trying to show that it is a lot more expressive than mytap.
There are currently *very few* unit tests in the codebase.
If people think unit tests are a good idea, then maybe
they will actually start writing them, given a better framework.
I use unit.pl as a test runner, so no re-invention there.
