This is great. Just a small side-note: Am I the only one who misses the
2.8.0 days when you could do "git clean -dxff" in the t/ directory to
clean up various test crap without breaking subsequent tests?

That went away in e6e7530d10 ("test helpers: move test-* to t/helper/
subdirectory", 2016-04-13) when we started building stuff in t/helper/.

So now that this is one binary perhaps we can build it in the root
directory and get that functionality back?
