One of the major problems is that we don't have a reliable way to test

This sounds interesting.  I'm not sure I like the specific approach
you've taken, but yes, I'd be interested in tackling this problem. Would it be possible to refactor the backends first? I'd be really
happy if that were complete.  In fact, one of the ways I'm thinking
about rewriting the PostScript backend would likely make this kind of
analysis somewhat easier.
