I'll have to ponder whether it would be faster to manually write and
maintain these tests or write a test generator.  It seems like you could
annotate with metadata and auto-generate a fair number of tests that way.

BTW, a key motivating factor in creating a set of FlexUnit tests is to try
to conform to that government standard you told me about.  Do you have a 5
sentence summary of what a test suite needs to cover?  Is it measured
purely by code coverage or do you have to have boundary tests, negative
tests, etc?
