Actually, we won't. We still desperately need more unit and functional
tests for the code base - I've been writing unit tests for utf-8
handling, and finding truncation errors in parts of the code. I also
need to write tests so that invalid utf-8 byte sequences are handled
properly. There's not much point in *not* getting things like these

Sure. But it's work that can be done *as well as* the work Shaun and
others are working on, not instead of.

Anyways, in many areas the testing is getting ahead of the curve,
since there's still lots of questions need answering about what the
API should do, never mind testing it.
