In this case, it's because adding the test requires importing a new
module ('pre'), which in turn would require adding a warning, which
would require checking that the warning didn't mess anything else up.
I thought it was a bit too much upheaval for a module that no one
should be using any more.

If Anthony or Guido or someone tells me to bite the bullet and make
the test run, I'll do it, of course.
