For my needs so far, I always grabbed rt.lisp, slurped it into my
project tree, and built a domain-specific testing infrastructure on top
of it. (Of course, I adapted the package of the rt code each time, so
there's no problem with one shared global RT state.)

As long as you're dealing with readably-printable data structures, RT is
just fine -- and it's so minimal that you can just include it and do not
have to add a dependency to your project.
