Benjamin raised the issue that the tests are re-linked all the time if they are in gtk/tests/ (unless you learn yourself to use "make all-am" instead of a plain make like I did ...).

If we decide the move the tests from gtk/tests/ to somewhere else, I wouldn't mind a toplevel unittests/ directory.

Good idea!  I've never understood why these pixbuf things were in demos/.
