Let's do it.

Ahem, that's probably just my crappy scripts. I used unix exit code to
report the number of failed cases, but of course other sorts of errors
can override my number. When in doubt, run M-x slime-run-tests

There's a bug in the interactive testing too though -- it reports the
number of successful tests with the number of failed _cases_, so it
might say "Failed 100/10 tests". Will fix :-)
