Just an small experience, beeing the maintainer of libadns from Ian, which
includes some regression tests I had the problem, that libadns itself was
easyly portable, the Regression tests, expecially since they deal with
numerical errno and heap sizes (for memleaks) where not so easy. I had to
make a few adjustments.

On the other hand, I would have loved to export the regression tests, to not
stop the builds on them.

Ah yes, if you look for regression tests, you can also see Ian's framework
in Source: adns.

But... umm.. well.. it does not look very multifunctional and reuseable to
me :)
