Note that I have no experience with tests since I never did programming
professionally. I wrote the tests in the patch simply by looking at
other examples in the file.

I cannot find anything like delayed failure in the info node for ERT and
in the source code. There are should, should-not, should-error, and
skip-unless asserts.

Using a macro is certainly more efficient than my copy-paste in the
patch :) Though you may probably use more backquoting (see Backquote in
Elisp manual) when writing macros. That would look more readable.

It is indeed possible and maybe even welcome in emacs-devel.

Well... Example from ERT info page:

     (ert-deftest ert-test-mismatch ()
       (should (eql (cl-mismatch "" "") nil))
       (should (eql (cl-mismatch "" "a") 0))
       (should (eql (cl-mismatch "a" "a") nil))
       (should (eql (cl-mismatch "ab" "a") 1))
       (should (eql (cl-mismatch "Aa" "aA") 0))
       (should (eql (cl-mismatch '(a b c) '(a b d)) 2)))

> ... and to get all failures in a reasonably readable report.

When running ert interactively, things should get a little more
manageable. See Running Tests Interactively node of ERT manual.

Hope it helps.
