I'm always very wary of trusting tests that I write myself. I
consistently find that I end up missing things. A good test strategy is
to use someone else's tests with a compatibility shim, it exercises
parts I would never have thought of.

BTW your test suite did find new bugs, but interestingly in one of the
C++ compilers, not in Outcome :)
