One little aspect of the tests code is that people might look (also) there to
learn how to use a certain gnulib module, and then copy/paste the code from
there into their projects.
That's at least true for the good test cases, surely not for those provoking 
This means it may be worthwhile to have at least the good test cases in a 
free shape (which I think it most often already is).
