they are meant to document how much testing has been written in the 
regression test suite. The idea being that each interface function gets 
tested on standard and boundary cases (in the ./testfiles directories).

but nothing scientific about really. It always depended on how well 
people wrote and write tests. Now at some point we did some attempt to 
sort out where we have tests and where we are still missing them.

There is some support in the make file for this "make checktest"

but we didn't quite got this properly going (yet)
