   I'm not too worried about the different configurations even.  Just the 
basics of the loading code would be great to have tested.  We can also use 
these for performance regression tests as they become more full-featured.

  Beyond the automated unit tests, it's also useful to have test sessions we 
can just open in Kst to make sure everything looks right.  Once we start to 
get a useful collection, I'll have an automated visual-regression suite 
implemented.  We have one in KHTML and it works very well.
