Subject: Too many tests?
Download (untitled) / with headers

There are many thousands of tests, and it takes hours to run the test suite. Are that many tests needed for coverage? Maybe it would be better to break the module up into smaller modules.

It appears that a barrage of repetitive tests is run for each font. This can be a problem if you got many fonts. This is good for a developer, but not a simple user. The test suite should by default only test a minimal amount of fonts (3 to be exact, arial times courier). You know there are too many tests when the test count overflows and starts again from 0.
