IMO, we should require all testcases to have a comment desribing, at
minimum, what the test is about. Without such a comment it is
frequently far from clear what exactly the test is testing.
The fact the Jakub supplies test cases is commendable, but I feel the
extra 30 seconds to add a one- or two-line comment would be well spent
for all of us in future. I have made an effort to comment all of my
test cases for well over 1 year now.
Do others agree? Should this be added to the on-line patch submission
