Perhaps the best excuse I've ever heard :-). Congratulations!

This week?! Don't you have better things to do?

But yes, a review at some point would be appreciated. The goal is to
have something close to what test-framework has always had (ie tree of
tests, QC, HUnit, other tests to be lifted in) but using as few language
extensions as we can get away with. I also rather like Thomas'
pure/impure distinction. It's also important of course to handle things
like RNG seeds so that we can reproduce test runs.
