That's more or less what I did at first, but I figured since cl-loop is
a large macro, that it's best to quote the macro so that an accidental
error doesn't halt testing.
I prefer just use (eval '...) in those cases where the expansion fails.
That way the file is more readable, and a reader focus her eye in those
failing expansions.

I agree that it's more readable, and if I was doing this for my own
project I'd just leave the (eval '...) out where possible.

Maybe we could add a comment in the file saying that those
`should-error' are failing expansions to be fixed.

Part of the problem is that the "failing expansions that should be fixed" aren't
wrapped in a should-error, but are wrapped in a should. The test itself
is marked as ":expected-result :failed".
Feel free to adapt the patch to your taste: in the way you find it more
convenient.

I also have a patch that appears to do this, but it breaks a few tests
due to Bug#24402[1]. Perhaps a fix to that bug will also make it so that
macro-expansion errors will be caught be should*.

I hope that Bug#24402 can be fixed before committing these tests, so we
can just remove the (eval '...) noise altogether.
I agree with you. Thanks for point me out to such bug report (i wasn't aware of it).
I will teletransport to that bug report.  See you there!
