Generally yes.  But this specific issue discusses a potential (slow) mass 
bug-filing of many similar (in spirit, not technically) bugs and thus 
warrants a discussion on d-d. 

Ian: I add my voice to what you already perceive: these tests would be 
welcome, and I'd probably accept them to my few packages.  A very short 
(one screenfull or so) HOWTO/README about how the whole system works linked 
from the bug would be helpful, because I don't have the time to read up on 
it now, but will want to when you file the first bug on my pkgs, without 
having to sort through 100 mailing list hits with 90% content which doesn't 
apply anymore because the technical details were changed...
