They are run via "make check" -- it's a standard GNU mechanism that is
built into our make system automatically by Automake. These tests are
loosely maintained at best -- they were put in a long time ago, but
the bulk of our regression testing codes are in different, not-
publicly-accessible repositories (mainly because many of them were not
originally written by us and we were too lazy to look into public
redistribution rights).

Great! More tests, examples, documentation, and code are always

Note that we have a separate "devel_at_[hidden]" list for developer-
level discussions.
