Beginnings of a test suite is here:

http://buzzword.org.uk/2008/foaf_ssl/tests/manifest.ttl

The idea is that a test harness (and there's an example test harness
provided at http://buzzword.org.uk/2008/foaf_ssl/tests/test-harness.pl)
would take the manifest as input and run each test against an endpoint
which is what's being tested. The endpoint is a WebID-secured script
which simply echoes out a text/plain document consisting of a single
line: a dash if authentication is unsuccessful; the WebID URI
otherwise.
