I've scanned the mentioned url, the experiments you write about, do you 
consider these different than unit tests?

In my approach a unit tests can be designed as soon as an error is 
reproducable, and this unit test can be used to verify the fix of the 
error. The other already existing unit tests can be run to check for 
regressions. Is it just a choice of words where we differ, or do you see 
a real difference in experiments and unit tests? Or do i use the term 
unit test too broadly.
