About the reg tests:
allow me to quote my official mentor GP: when I became the new LSR
guy, the first assignment he gave me was to add to the LSR any of the
regression tests that might be useful.

You'll be dealing with items in the "regression tests" document.
It's currently a huge page (you'll notice this when you first click on
the link).  Users should never have to look at this page (because it's
such a mess); you should be the last user to ever use this page!  :)

I completely agree with this way of thinking. I do use the manual as
often as you do, and every time I have to reach for the reg tests, my
first reaction is to think "OK, this one is missing in the LSR", and
add it instantly. Same goes for the list archives. The LSR is
obviously the right place for an exhaustive tuplets demonstration; if
you gave me the precise tests reference, I'll be happy to add it
I'd like to emphasize this point: if there is any regtests which is useful as documentation and there is no corresponding snippet in LSR, this is a bug. Please report it as such, and Valentin will fix the situation.

The *only* reason that the regtests are still on the main doc page is that it gives us a nice set of 3 4x4 blocks of items. If I wasn't so fussy (obsessive? :) about presentation, I'd remove it from that page in an instant.
