  Description     : write tests, not scripts that run them

 Writing table-driven tests is usually a good idea.  Adding a test case
 doesn't require adding code, so it's easy to avoid fucking up the
 other tests.  However, actually going from a table of tests to a test
 that runs is non-trivial.
 Test::TableDriven makes writing the test drivers trivial.  You simply
 define your test cases and write a function that turns the input data
 into output data to compare against.  C<Test::TableDriven> will compute
 how many tests need to be run, and then run the tests.
 Concentrate on your data and what you're testing, not
  plan tests => scalar keys %test_cases
 and a big foreach loop.
