Only ad-hoc tests. :( I started testing the index reader by copying across a
Java-created index and making sure it could read that, but now I can generate
indexes in Perl, I'm using those instead. Ideally, I will have some tests that
make sure that the two representations are identical.

Oh, believe me, I'd love it if I could work full-time in Ruby.
