I forget the exact incantation, but I have a test list, and just test
for the test list at the top of the Handler, and return success

It's not going to be that easy because the handlers receive both the
message itself and a message information object, and creation of the
object is non-trivial.  For hints I'd look at the testing code.

Not as far as I'm concerned, "create a custom Handler" is commonly
offered as a solution here, so we should be willing to support it
