Yeah, that IS an issue. It is also not as well documented as desired[1].

Should we look at using something external as a well to complement/supplement it? Or even start adding some specific tests under the ./test subdirectory in the repo. Maybe say that the requirement is some sort of test "bundled" w/ the feature; it doesn't need to be under the perl test framework. Or maybe some way the perl test framework can call other test scripts written in whatever language someone wants; it simply sets things up, lets the script run and checks the return status.
