 Please review branch "fancy_test_tricks".  It's got a very small amount of
 mocking support, and a great deal of infrastructure to make the mocking
 support usable.

 The mocking methodology here is "the simplest thing that could work" --
 it's one of the ones that festoon the code with macro salad, and uglifies
 the declarations of functions that are going to get mocked.  It has the
 advantage of being portable, robust, and comprehensible.
