The thing about writing a unit testing framework from scratch is that you can't use test driven development to make it, but hey, at least I'm not building a compiler from scratch.
Er, why can't you use TDD?

@glyn Because, in the beginning at least, I don't have a framework to write the tests with. This is for Plan9, and as far as I can tell, no such thing exists yet.

I've written a very basic framework at this point. My next step will be to write tests for that, and then go full TDD to write the convenience features.

Ah, I see. A bootstrapping problem.
