I would still like to make things more modular in the future. That is,
I'd like the tests to be categorized and grouped so that one can run a
single group of tests, (or even a single test). I'd also like to have
some dependencies between tests so that when an early test fails, later
tests that depend on that functionality will simply report UNTESTED due
to the earlier failure.
But there's certainly no need to wait for that before adding additional

Michal, thanks for all your effort to modularize based on the git test
suite. I know you've had to put continual effort to keep your patches up
to date as things have changed. Sorry that you got blocked by some
relicensing that hasn't quite worked out.

Want to replay all the git test-suite commits other than any from the
person with the missing ack? That should get us pretty close to the
current state in git, would give us code we could use, and might even
make it possible for us to submit improvements directly to the upstream

completely due to conflicts.)
Just an idea anyway. I also understand if you don't have motivation to
pursue this further. And we can just do our own "modularization" as we
want new features.
