I have created a test script at
<http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/test_handler.py> (mirrored at
<http://fog.ccsf.cc.ca.us/~msapiro/scripts/test_handler.py>) which can
be used to unit test your handler against a test list and message and
optional metadata. I also updated the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/l4A9> to point to this script.
