my current project is a window manager for X Windows.  It is all X lib calls
and UI events.  I can maybe test 5% of it.  Seems most of the programs I have
worked on turn out that way.  I write as many tests as I can but usually it
just doesn't work out for me.

But you are right, test as early and as often as possible and the code can't be
all bad (-:
