Indeed, it's my pet topic; I apologize for the bugs, and I am grateful
to you for bearing with me thus far. Obviously, there was a big gap
from "(seems to) works for me" to "works robustly for everyone"; but
this time, I believe the bugs have been shaken, and the new test
system is superior in many ways, including not drowning the screen in
so much noise, providing better replay information on error,
supporting one more Lisp (clasp), an interactive list of commands,
ability to invoke tests from the SLIME REPL, etc.

Please try again, and merge into master if satisfactory.
