	Well - of course, it'd be nice to have some more complex tests of
StarBasic (and VBA) macros, potentially loaded from .bas files inside a
unit test.

	Noel - do you have any really nasty syntax / built-in basic
functionality corner cases embedded into xls files that could be
extracted and turned into compile-time unit tests in basic/ ?

	Otherwise digging out some more easy hacks to play with :-) If you love
basic then - trying to compile and execute macros that are > 64k long
(do we have a regression test for that?) might be a good idea - I
imagine many limits are still in-place there. Converting more code from
the String -> OUString types is probably worthwhile.

	Is that interesting ?

	Thanks again,
