As we are speaking about the test, we should not forget to test the different
mapping tree usages:
the common ones (like standard, chaining or referral on update backends)
and the uncommon ones (like those involving the various distribution plugins)
I am a bit uneasy about thoses, as I remember they sometimes involved weird configuration
and custom plugins), that said it is old stories and things have probably changed.
Let's hope that we now have a nice list of supported distribution scenarios
These are all really good ideas for expansion of the tests, for certain. Since the scope
of the change is just the tree hierarchy, not the backend type though, then there should
be no impact if it's chaining/bdb/referral in the tree, only that the nodes are
But more testing is always good, and I'm looking at the area now anyway, so I'll
add some of these. Thanks!
