(Tobias poked me on IRC as well, so this reply is for the list mostly)

We should eventually use glib's test framework instead of the homegrown
stuff.  That's possible in 0.8 because we require a glib version there
that has the unit test helpers, while 0.7.x can't make that assumption.
Any new tests should probably use the new glib stuff, and we can convert
the old tests over when there's time.
