The current unit tests are not portable to other kioslaves.
Only kioslavetest can be used with any ioslave, but well, it's just a GUI test app, no automated checking.
IIRC you said on irc that you were thinking of a generic kioslave tester,
that sounds like a good idea, although I wonder how generic it can really be,
given the amount of different kinds of ioslaves that exist.
