I hope this is not motivated from the other discussion we were having
to link example snippets.

I find link to source modules helpful , but I not sure how helpful it
would be to link the tests, as it has chances of adding to confusing
given the xUnit test 'unittests' we have in our tests module. When
looking for usage assistance people look for complete scripts rather
than test scripts. Source module link help to provide 'more-accurate'
information as lot many times code explains better than words.

So, +0 from me.
