I think we need to seperate basic tests a bit. Unit test like the
newly integrated one should and can be in basic but all tests that
should execute a macro need to move a bit later in the build, like sc
or sw. There we have all needed modules and we have already a concept
that should work fine. The advantage of these tests is that all
dependency problems we have for executing "useful" macros are solved.

StarBasic tests should already work and I'm working on VBA tests to
make them more usefull. If you want you can have a look and maybe add
some useful tests there.

But keep up your good work. Every added test is a win.
