If you'd like to keep the tests on separate files, it's fine with me,
but please add a comment somewhere for why these tests are in a

The inconvenient part of this arrangement is that I at least am in the
habit of typing "make lisp/foo-tests TAB" in the test/ directory after
making any changes to lisp/foo.el, and I normally take the lack of
completion to mean there are no tests for foo.el.  Having to remember
to look in subdirectories is a burden.  It is up to you to decide
whether your motivation for keeping separate test files is more
important than that.
