I'd guess that a lot of untested functions here are the slot wrappers,
which are macro generated and all boilerplate, except for a couple.
I'd be interested in seeing the list to see if my intuition is right
though; if wrong, it's time to add some tests.  And it probably
wouldn't hurt to add tests for the boilerplate stuff anyway, just to
be extra careful about understanding expectations and protecting
against regression failures.
