There could always be different levels of test completeness.

Level one is "having a basic test".
Level two is "tests for all basic functionality".
Level three is "tests for all functionality" and/or "all assertions have
a test".
Level four is "tests for all functionality with uncommon (evil) usage
Level five is "testing the intersection of other specs".

Hm, maybe levels is not the way, but anyway, it would certainly be very
nice to actually know a bit more about the test coverage. Just 80% 50%
etc is not telling me anything. I think it'd be have 100% level two on
specs. Higher levels are always harder to write tests for and are
probably better to do once we have the tests for all normal (good, nice
web developer) usage.
