First off, sit well back from your screens. I've just had the flu and wouldn't 
like to infect you all :-)

I always assumed that this test was to detect whether we were in unit test or 
application mode, though I can't quite remember how I came to that conclusion! 
I presumed the idea was to do unit tests offline.

I added the Finance::Quote branch when I rewrote the Gnucash importer, since 
F::Q is what Gnucash uses (or used to anyway). I'm not sure of the support 
status of that package these days, so I wouldn't be surprised to find that 
some sources no longer work. 

I also wrote the financequote.pl script, based on one supplied by Gnucash. 
They also had a script called update-finance-quote which would upgrade to the 
latest version. I just installed Gnucash 2.3 and I don't see it there. I'll 
look into it a bit.
