assumes too much knowledge of the internals of the toolkit, and I'd love
to write some higher-level stuff instead for such tests.  (Feel free to

Well, the current gtk test suite is about unit tests, but the a11y-tests
are more about functional tests. I'm not sure if gtk developers wants to
add on gtk itself so high-level tests. In any case, if this is done, it
would be good to take a look to old initiatives like DesktopTesting [1],
and which gtk tests are already defined on Mago, ldtp, etc. Although I
have the feeling that most of those tests are application oriented, it
would be good to check if they have specific gtk+ tests.
