Sure, I've been meaning to do this. Originally tests/ was supposed to
contain different test suites - there was going to be a pure Haskell 98
test suite and some separate tests for libraries, but I think the last
vestiges of these were removed recently by Ian.
My fingers have learned te<TAB>te<TAB>g<TAB> so it'll mess me up for a
while but I'll get used to it :)
