I get that, but there are other manual tests in the repositories. I saw
one yesterday that required downloading a font before running it. I
think it better to have everything in one place rather than relying on
someone to find this e-mail thread.

The bitrot argument seems a little odd, given it would be more open to
updates in the repositories rather than on a web server where only you
can update it :/
