That would suffice. Thanks.

I think it would be useful to have tests for a stack checking and a
consistency. Nicolai has written some lately for our internal testing, but
it would take some time to transform them appropriately, I think.

So I would start with this and we can add more later. I would also
establish a (soft) rule to submit selftests with new features.
