No one expects anyone to test on multiple platforms, since that is
almost an impossible thing to do.

However, checking that there are no typos, that it compiles at least on
your own box, before you release it, shouldn't be too hard...

A _normal_ user doesn't know what a particular class is supposed to do,
therefor a 'gmake test' won't do him/her much good, because he has no
idea whether the result is correct or not.

Besides that, a test scenario can only check so many features but not
every possible issue.
