I just had a quick talk off the list with Nic, because it seemed to me
we were talking past each other, and indeed we were! :-)

The question I had, which I seem to have not explained well, was:

How do we mock this case in the Emacs "core" (i.e. the main Emacs
repository), as we can not use existing mock libraries (that I know of)
because they are not part of Emacs.

I can obviously write my own, as Nic suggests above, or just use the
default verbose options, as I have in the initial mail, but I figured
I'd ask first if there was something I am missing before reinventing the
wheel. :-)
