That would be a good test of the install instructions and process, but
it is not really a test of the system as such.

I have been writing unit tests for parts of my new caed implementation,
so for example, lib/rdringbuffer.cpp has a function that can be called
to run a sanity check on the ringbuffer implementation.  

A **lot** more of this sort of thing would be good however.
