   Also, Thi has changed makefiles to have make check call some test
   cases, you could have those approaches work together.

Everyone, please feel free to comment/criticize the current "make check"
framework.  The intention there is to provide a standard entry point
that allows expressive testing; if you find the reality does not meet
that ideal, speak up and we'll improve it together.

Re testing, and killing two birds w/ one stone[0], perhaps some of the
driver programs can be packaged into a libredwg-tool and (optionally)
installed in ${bindir}?  This would:

- provide easier testing (you can write scripts using libredwg-tool);
- provide a reference program for libredwg.h wrapping (API usage);
- (an extreme case (if installed to the exclusion of libredwg.h itself))
  allow us to tinker (arbitrarily change) the API for a few more releases.

The last point is less user-facing and more maintainer-oriented, but i
believe the first two are compelling enough.  What do people think?
