  I agree.  There's no need to include the test data, just a script
that takes the path to the test data as an argument (with an easily
edited default ;) and runs the test.  The README can include a pointer 
to the test data, just in case.  Most users won't want to hack the
internals or run the tests; just developers and the paranoid.
