Dividing up the sample code into testable subroutines didn't work so well.
There's a conflict between what tests well and what reads well in
sample/tutorial material.

I wound up adding a test (perl/t/binding/702-sample.t) which simply verifies
that the sample apps work -- that creates an index, and that
search.cgi searches the index and returns the expected number of results.
