Actually writing a good test suite *does* require a deep understanding
of internals because otherwise you can never ensure good coverage for
all corner and not-so-corner cases.

Sometimes test suite is quite like documentation by itself. It allows
to reason about the code it tests.

By collecting code snippets you at most will get a regression suite -
which might not even cover things that used to fail because something
inside LuaJIT internals has changed.
