Having real unit tests in addition to the current kind of testing
the complete program would be a benefit, not only for windows.
This way you can test if single functions do what you would expect.
For a more complete test a unittest test suite could import
mercurial.commands and this way test the commands similar to how it
is done now.
But I think the other tests shouldn't go away for now, as they
provide a good reference of bugs that occured in the past.
