This is a good plan; I just hadn't figured out how to make it work before.

Perhaps we could divide the sample scripts up into testable subroutines, then
performing a require/do to import its subs into the current namespace.

    require "sample/" or die $@;
    ok( parse_file("sample/us_constitution/amend10.txt"), "parse_file" );
