[IPython-dev] Proposal to get unit test coverage as soon as possible

I suppose we should try to cover as much of the classic ipython code
as possible. Even if we can't easily ensure that something behaves
correctly without lot of stubbing work (as opposed to something
obvious such as crashing), we should at least *excercise* as much of
the code as possible. If thinking about perfect test case prevents you
from writing anything, stop thinking and start writing ;-).

Additionally, I don't think unit tests need to go through code review
process. They won't break anything, and when they themselves break it
is quite obvious why ;-)
