Guile test libraries, regression testing and `make check'

The Guile source distribution has a test-suite directory that contains a
script and library with procedures for running tests on the Guile
library and REPL when `make check' is invoked.  Googling the web I found
a v1.4 Guile manual
<> that
at least implied this code was in ice-9 at some point but it's not there
now.  Why was it removed?  And, is there a suitable replacement so that
a ``pragmatically efficient'' (i.e. lazy) hacker can quickly and easily
create a test suite for a Guile library that runs under automake's
`check' target?  IMHO putting the code back in the set of installed
files, or alternatively creating something like a `guile-test-suite'
package, would be beneficial.
