I probably should take you up on the offer (thanks), but then again I should be 
doing that myself as well. Lemme try it myself with you and Sean as sounding boards
if that's ok. I gotta get the RFC up-to-date first anyway.

Doh!  Writing tests the first time is draining enough.  I'm not surprised
it was hard to build the ambition to redo it.  

There is some information on the MSAutoTest suite in the old wiki at:


I found Sean's python test cases pretty easy to extend once I had the
hang of running them but them I am already a python scripter. 

I wouldn't minding building WKT related tests cases for you.
