Amusingly, while the sal/ tests -look- good ;-) many of them are simply
not run because they fail to register the actual tests - which is not
ideal (or did that get fixed?); I guess now we have the CI infra - the
easy hack to fix that becomes even more of an easy hack - I recall
filing it as one; but can't find it just now ... odd. I forget which
macro it is necessary to add to nail that.
