try to provide a fair amount of detail along with short answers.

Of course, no test suite is perfect, but I hope this addresses your
concerns, or at least answers your questions. We're always trying to
improve the test suite and welcome any suggestions.
It definitely does, and I much appreciate the detailed response
(hopefully you wrote it not just as a response, but also a checklist
for yourself, confirming there're no obvious things missed). It
actually took some time to go in detail thru it, and I agree that good
thought was put into various cases, it works close to the best possible
(and I'm conservative only because I didn't use it much enough).

To address a potential follow-up, I am looking into adding better
coverage metrics to the test suite (it's tricky because a lot of the
Sounds great, and even the test file you referred to is 20K, so testing
coverage is definitely not "bare". My only concern would be that
