I think Lennart was arguing for a safety belt: if we're not supposed to 
break those tests *at all* within bug fixes then I want to know right 
away if I did so accidentally. I guess your coverage argument was that 
if the unit tests do the coverage anyway then we won't miss anything, 
but we won't be 100% anyway and as the tests in the docs do exist and 
should run quickly, the safety belt would be cheap.

I'm +0.5 after some pondering.
