Hi Nimish. Glad you are interested in our test suite.

I just committed a file that does just this. It is untested, but I'm
sure you can fix it if there is a bug:

please don't use 4.6 release. use HEAD. 4.6 version of this module was

I would appreciate if you could fix some of these tests, and perhaps
improving our debug output so that we don't get a blank screen. there is
a lot of potential in these tests, but small bugs are preventing them
from being useful at this point.
