I'm not sure about this, to be honest. It would mean putting effort on testing something in a way that we know will go away, while keeping the main trunk untested, which is where I think the effort should be put instead.

Yes, testatk.c is easier to handle than layout tests for this (too ATK specific) kind of tests, but again that's code that will go away and that is no longer in trunk, so I see little point on that approach.

By old-fashioned test you mean a layout test? If so, then yes I do think that would be better :)

Cool thanks!
