      Might write a GUI-driving test.
      Might just test it manually.
      Might test the "SaveAs" method with an automated test.
      Create a buffer with "abc" in it.
      SaveAs "foo.text"
      Check to see if foo.txt has "abc" in it.
      Change buffer to abcdef"
      SaveAs "bar.txt"
      Check to see if foo.txt has "abc" in it.
      Check to see if bar.txt has "abcdef" in it.

      NUnit. Fit/FitNesse.

      Agility might be said to be about encountering
      all the problems so early and so often that the
      effort to fix them is less than the pain of enduring them.
