No - but it is very popular and well understood, and simple to use for simple cases, and works well
with the suite of testers on the many platforms. I can't think of any reason why not to use it.
Perhaps a few simple loopback tests are all the is really essential?
(I note, with approval, that lots of potential 'naughty' abuses are already caught by assert
compile-time checks in the code).
And some examples already exist, but a one or two really simple ones would be desirable too. The
latter could be referenced from the Quickbook text as snippets of code.
PS I will reply privately about prototype docs.
