Surely there's a way to provide this debugging use case without
ostracizing the test from the automated test suite. Why not have a
ert-with-temp-buffer which if the test fails (within the form), a file
would be saved off with the buffer contents. Ideally the test case
name would be in the generated filename.

It looks like the test/indent tests are only good for null-diff
general indentation rules. And worst of all not automated.
