I am still unsure how easy it is.  I did a little bit of investigations
when I started tp/ on integrating a perl module (which is what tp/ basically
is) with autoconf/automake but I found nothing obvious.  Also if tp/ is 
to be distributed separately too (which I think would be nice) there should
also certainly be some adjustments.

Right now those are the tests of texi2html that are run, not those of
tp/.  Current tp tests are much better focused, and, in addition, tp is
a bit faster.  Parser, Info and Plaintext tests are already done, and they
don't take too much time, in my opinion.

In any case, I fully agree that current texi2html tests are much too long,
I even think that they almost become detrimental for the developpement...
