An exciting thing happened this week, which is that Zack and I figured
out a very clean way to add tests for the main extension code in HTTPS
Everywhere (without having a custom build of Firefox / xpcshell / pain).

If you want to test it out or add some tests, merge this pull request
into your HTTPS Everywhere repo:
https://github.com/EFForg/https-everywhere/pull/338. Instructions for
running tests are here:

The tests are written in Javascript and have the usual js assertion
semantics so they should be pretty easy to add:

(You can also write tests for SSL Observatory -
gives you access to its js object!)
