Yes that is correct.

That is correct.

It's nice to Snickers work with Snacc4J generated PDUs as well as
Snickers generated PDUs.  The test is generally more sound rather then
using what you are building to test itself.  This is the dilema.

No what is written is exactly what I was referring to.  Basically we
want as a last verification step see that Snacc4j generated PDUs are
readable by Snickers and Snickers written PDUs are readable by Snacc4j
or any other library.

If we generate a PDU using a tool based on Snacc4j we can save the
resultant image and pump that into the Snickers decoder for testing. 
This is what I was referring to.
