Who is going to do the work? There are a number of regression tests in
src/tests, they can even be run automatically. There is work on a fully
automated test setup as well. It still needs to be prepared though.

The problem is that the approach doesn't scale. You can't run all
test cases for every single commit. It is simply not feasible. It is
also questionable how much problems are actually detected that way.

So you have good test cases, we like to include them. They just don't
grow on trees.
