Though, once you have figured out what you want to happen, it's still worth testing.

Agreed. But becareful of your tests as well. The UBC cosmic microwave
background group lost out possibly on a Nobel prize because the tests their
rocket payload was subject to was far harsher than it needed to be. The
equipment had to be fixed after the test which took about 6-8 mohths, which
allowed COBE to report their results for the CMB spectrum first. Subjecting
your system to too stringent tests can backfire on you. Test for expected conditions, not absurd conditions. Otherwise you waste time
fixing problems that will never occur.
