yes, a big one. There are quite a few bad tests from an age long gone 
(when few people knew how to /unit/ test). They introduce (among other 
things) a lot more, complex, dependencies. The tests that have been 
split out use testcase which uses component which uses...it's just ugly.

If you would like them out of the way, that's okay; create something 
like "legacy-tests" and stuff it in there. But please don't merge them 
back in.
