I don't like the current implementation. It uses too many macros and unnecesary

It should be in a separate repository.

The test-cases could be useful to catch "low hanging fruit".

Testsuites can have bugs, will you write tests for the tests? :P

Real-world use is most useful, but of course we need to keep to standards.

Kind regards,
