Do you know which tests were copied from the existing testsuite at some
point? E.g. utrwsync.pp is derived from an old (buggy) version of

We don't need custom-formatted reports for the testsuite, just exit
codes from individual test programs. It seems we can easily create those
by simply creating programs that include individual units. The punit
unit can be moved to tests/tstunits when the other ones are moved to the
appropriate directories under tests/test/units, so it will be
automatically found when compiling them.
