You are entirely right that we have a serious lack of testcases at the moment. 
This is intended to be a temporary situation, hence my interest in working out 
an implementation-independent format for tokenizer/parser testcases - the more 
separate projects that can share the same testcases, the more we should accrete 
overall and, hopefully, there will be fewer subtle bugs which damage 
interoperability.

It would be really great if you (and others!) could get involved and help us 
remedy the current poor test situation.
