I don't understand the utility of such testing. When one edits  
CodeGenerator*.pm, that's generally to change its output, so run- 
bindings-tests tests will of course fail.

It's great to test end-to-end behavior, and unit tests can also also  
useful sometimes, but why test that source code stays byte to byte
