 Heh, you actually upgrade each time? ;-) I never do so, except on point
 releases... If even then... And I consider myself more savvy than most
 with WP.

 It's just, you know... the QA. Which, as we all know here, kind of
 sucks... Upgrading the likes of Zend is one thing (80% unit test
 coverage?); upgrading WP is another. No amount of emailing me will make me
 change my mind on not wanting to break the sites I manage.

 What would, would be for WP, and every single theme and plugin in the
 repo, to contain a tests folder, that I can use phpunit with...

 Suggesting wontfix on this ticket, personally. The positive points,
 whichever I can think of, seem nonsensical.
