The tests that we have now really center around unit testing the
models which are shipped with GTK+ itself.
Having an automatic tester for generic GtkTreeModels to test for
conformance is still something I would love to have and have been
thinking about before. It would be a module in which you plug your own
implementation of GtkTreeModel to have it tested. I was wondering on
how this would look like -- but I guess it could be something like
"gtk_tree_model_auto_test_new_with_model(GtkTreeModel*)". Second, I
think an interface is needed to tell the auto tester how to add/remove
rows in the custom model, since GtkTreeModel only deals with read
I will think some more about it.
