The test framework is minitest[1] (see [2] for a quick overview) - it's
in the stdlib for Ruby 1.9, and combines the features of a handful of
the most popular Ruby test frameworks.

It won't change whether we use VCR or not; as for cucumber, I am
somewhat on the fence whether we should continue using it, or should
just switch to straightup specs for the API, too.

There's a lot in motion with the modular branch - I want to wait for
that to be settled before we embark on rewriting tests. For new tests,
it's probably best if you write them using minitest; it shouldn't
collide with anything we're doing right now.
