Many tests below ./t still generate TAP by "hand", rather than using library
functions. As explained in perlhack/TESTING, tests in ./t are written in a
particular way to test that more complex constructions actually work before
using them routinely. Hence they don't use Test::More, but instead there is an
intentionally simpler library, ./t/test.pl. However, quite a few tests in ./t
have not been refactored to use it. Refactoring any of these tests, one at a
time, is a useful thing TODO.

The subdirectories base, cmd and comp, which contain the most basic tests,
**must** be excluded from this task.
