I've converted every instance of
I did this automatically and have not attempted to rationalize any of
the tests. This means that you'll see a lot of things like
but at least you'll now get a more accurate count of test passes.
This doesn't work in every case, because there are many instances of

which do not easily fit into the harness.check() way of doing things.
