My take on this is that all tests that can be put in the existing
mauve framework are "library" tests, and all tests that cannot or for
which it would be unreasonably cumbersome to do so are "VM" tests.
(I admit that's a somewhat coarse and loose definition.)
For the latter kind, the VM tests, I think starting up a VM and diffing
the output against the expected output is the most straightforward thing
