Nice. I especially like the extra testing part. Thanks a lot for your work.

Best regards,

Thanks. I somehow never noticed the tests2/ collection, and just added that to the test suite, so we will get better diagnostics there. Also, I noticed that, on Mac, the 32_led croaks with the _OSSwapInt16 issue, so I've marked that as expected to fail on Macs.

I am also quite curious to see what kinds of reports we'll get.

While scrutinizing my MANIFEST file (which indicates which files are actually distributed with the tarball on CPAN), I noticed the CMakeLists.txt. The build system doesn't use them. Is there a reason they are there?
