I would agree that unit testing isn't necessary. And certainly a massive
testing framework isn't needed to test the script. However, I do agree
that functional/regression tests are needed to test expected behaviour.
It doesn't need to be complicted. It doesn't need to be part of
distribution packages. It would put some people at ease knowing that the
script works and has the required dependencies and versions installed.
