I tried this once, for the lexical parser in a desktop calculator program
I wrote. It is a really liberating experience, and leads to greater
experimentation.

If you have tests for everything that can go wrong (this being the
difficult bit), rather than saying "I think this change works: it doesn't
_seem_ to break anything", you merely run the tests over it and _know_
that it hasn't broken anything.
