Mmm... yes I didn't really think about that.

At the moment, test modules are included in the executable as any other 

It allows to test the executable using the '-T' interpreter option.

But on the other hand you are providing your tests to the final user in 
an executable bigger thant it should be. Maybe not a wanted thing...
