Testing is good.
1) Unit tests for module developers is a good idea.  I looked at  
phpunit but development has stopped and it's not easy to configure.
2) Crawlers to check sites after an upgrade is also a good test, and  
I think we should leave wget in the manual but start looking at  
recommending other crawlers with examples.  There are specific  
regular expressions that would be useful when crawling a site and  
wget can not handle them.  For instance, not crawling admin is a good  
3) Functional testing is valuable.  If we can have non-programmers  
create scripted tests with xml this is another thing that non- 
programmers can contribute to the community.  Webinject seems to be a  
good OSS solution for this.
