We seem to be gravitating towards the idea that tests should be baked
into their host modules.  My rendition of this idea is for each module
like Darcs.RepoPath to export a single testSuite :: Test function,
which has the downside of requiring not just QC/HUnit imports in each
module but also test-framework ones as well.
