post the code or upload it to a web page. there's little point in
checking in code somewhere just to be moved in a few days/weeks.
also note that the tests/ directories usually are not compiled anyway,
so nobody will clobber you if you commit not entirely mature code.

i don't think that this is a problem. some already present tests have
dependencies beyond kdebase, even (at least run-time deps). they are not
part of a regular build and are in no case installed, so it hardly
matters what is needed to run them.
