After the discussion on IRC. The concern was that the scheme D does not
allow to create test run for a component (Base, Calc, Writer).

I think that it is not worth the effort. We do not have time to organize
test for a single fix. We will almost always test many fixes. They will
affect most components.

If we need to test a single fix for some reasons, we could solve it by
mail to the qa mailing list. It will be special situation. More details
will be needed. So, it would be hard to cover it by the usual regression
tests anyway.
