We don't have tests for all the existing routines.

Just smoke tests would be good enough, I think --- work space query
and calling the routine on some random data. I'd guess writing these
would be boring, but on the other hand writing the .pyf file probably
take more time.

Probably doesn't make so much sense checking any of the results, as we
trust LAPACK.
