Maybe slow, but I think you choose your words very well.

This is very well put. I have said something similar at the most recent Ruby committers' meeting. I strongly agree with this. If Ruby comes with (e.g.) Rational and Complex built in, but without any testing functionality, that would be fundamentally wrong.

Ryan, I'd encourage you to open features for your proposals.

ref. #9660

We are hard to maintain test-unit and minitest for standard library.
I poropose to remove to their from stdlib.

see also my patches: https://github.com/hsbt/ruby/compare/extracted-test-suite?expand=1

my solution is that test-unit and minitest move to test directory.
their are used only ruby-core tests.

If people hope to use test-unit and minitest, they can download their from rubygems.
