It won't be if we really start testing something rather than just being
sure that lintian returns a non-zero exit status, like being sure that
the right files are created and that directories in the lab are removed
properly.  Plus, writing it as a Perl script means that we can use the
Test::More functions to check things and report status properly with all
the nice infrastructure that Test::More provides.
