Yes, but MXUnit is not in there. I don't think mustella is in there either

Like I said, I cannot stop folks from running tests on your computer, but I
will veto tests being checked in using MXUnit.  I just don't think we should
have a dependency on something undocumented and unsupported.

If you want to take a stab at writing tests with Mustella, especially for
new components, I won't veto those, but if you are writing tests for the
framework itself you are duplicating work.

Also note: the tests only cover a small fraction of the code in the
framework.  BasicTests is just a quick sanity check of the top feature of
every component.
