    Yes, I would argue that integration tests are no replacement for unit 
tests. Unless there is some reason we cannot unit test this thing more 
directly.  And, if that is the case, then I'd argue we need to refactor.
    
    Think of the dread you get when an integration test fails.  'Oh crap, now 
what happened?'  And you get that feeling because it is very difficult to 
pinpoint root cause when an integration test fails.  We really should focus on 
more direct, targeted testing, unless there is some technical hurdle here.
