Similar issues arise in Leo.  Imo, it was a mistake not to require
unit tests for all "official" Leo plugins.  In practice, it seems the
time to require unit tests is when the plugin/extension is first
offered.  People never seem to add unit tests later. Alas, the cost of
not having unit tests just keeps going up...
