Since we are no longer running CI, let's not worry about the code supporting

In reality we will probably get better test coverage with your plan to make
the unit tests work from the gems than we were from CI.

Please go forward with your plan. For some strange reason, our users really
like to be able to run the tests for themselves. Don't they trust us?

Thanks for your work on this.
