FWIW emacs 24 now includes a package for regression testing 

ERT is a tool for automated testing in Emacs Lisp.  Its main features
are facilities for defining tests, running them and reporting the
results, and for debugging test failures interactively.

   ERT is similar to tools for other environments such as JUnit, but has
unique features that take advantage of the dynamic and interactive
nature of Emacs.  Despite its name, it works well both for test-driven
development (see
`http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test-driven_development') and for
traditional software development methods.
