I think this depends on the case. For example, when we decided to switch to
doctests, we did not simply rewrite all tests; and this is fine, because we
did not have the resources. For a change like Martijn's I think a massive
redoing was okay. Style is very high on my importance list. It gives new
developers an easier lead in.
