Mozilla's test submissions aren't all written by one person; they're
written by individual Mozilla contributors.  I'd like to encourage
more Mozilla contributors to write tests that are worth contributing
to the test suite -- but the harder it is to teach them how to do
that, the less likely I am to try, or if I do try, to succeed.
