	They probably weren't intended that way, but I'd like to see them be
more so. Test-Driven Development didn't exist as a popular philosophy
(though it should have been realized as simply a sensible thing to
do...) when the tests were originally written, so they probably just
weren't aimed in that direction.

	Doesn't that seem like duplicated effort with our own Selenium tests? I
mean, we even had Selenium tests for 2.22, if you wanted to use those.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
