I think it would be a great thing to have the test case also render
the results with dxf and load into blender. I also have a dxf2osm
(twonickels on github) tool we can use to produce osm data and then
render that as well. of course the projection would be off, but for
standalone data it does not matter.
Lets setup a nightly testing suite for running all tests every day (or
for major commits)
some type of continuous integration.
if you give me a server account to run it on, i will set up some tests.
