Writing test cases are always a nice way for new comers to get their feet wet
in a new, large project. Then have a newbie/mentor structure. Mentor guides the
development of test cases. New comers will learn how to test their code.> From:

test framework?
Or at least a simple agreement on "returns 0 == success, returns '1'

There must be some kind of non-lua test harness which catches those.
There were several such bugs in the past and they should be in the test
suite to prevent their re-occurrence.
