Well, you don't need to.

And I'm in the middle of moving it to a version 2.0.

The point about these things is that they're the only way you've got of
testing really. There's an enormous amount of grunt work in testing

- make your package
- start up a test emacs
- install your package
- run the tests
- see the results

that's horrid boring work that both cask and elpakit try and
automate. For me it's not the out-of-bandness so much... though
repeatability clearly guarantees that.
