I added a test suite to gtk-doc recently. Basically its just two sample
projects, where one is demontration how to use it (positive tests) and the 2nd
has the regression tests. For the 2nd one I basically have dummy code where
symbol names refer to bugnumbers like:
 * bug_26354:
 * ...
void bug_26354(const gchar* const str) {

Nothing prevents you to have a test suite for regressions where you encode the
bugnumber into the testcase name.
