Uhm? Really?

Unit testing is a *huge* PITA to set up but in the end it pays back.
Especially since the code itself doesn't need to be 'instrumented' for
testing usually... i.e. the tests are unobstrusive during development.

I didn't think it was so badly seen!

It is tricky when you need to test 'hardware' behaviour, like race
conditions and nested interrupts. Between two MCUs which have to run in
lockstep. And a common watchdog. That's hell:D
