Ha - testing schmesting! If Jeremy breaks it again ( :) ) we just undo
the change and slap his wrists. In the Real World, the customers (our
website visitors in this case) are the testers. I think the textbooks
mention something about testing, but I think it's one of those purely
theoretical concepts :)
Just because we're an open source project and *should* know better,
doesn't mean we have to do things right, does it? :) Having said that,
if we can get the w3c's validator and/or link checker on belgarath I
don't see why this can't be implemented, but as a 'pre-commit' hook, so
that the live website is *never* broken!
