It's worked to some extent. I've written a bunch of tests myself, and
ISTR at least one bug being caught later when these tests failed,
although I can't dig up the email right now.

One thing that would help is making automated testing results more
prominent. It'd be nice to direct build failure messages from
emacs-buildstatus to somewhere more prominent (like bug-gnu-emacs) where
we can treat a build break or test failure like any other bug. It'll
produce a lot of noise at first, but it'd be worth it, IMHO.

Setting up Windows, DOS, OS X, etc. builds would help too, but that's
more SHTDI work.
