Hate replying to my own messages, but any opinion on this? If we're updating
busted, then the _TEST global can either go into __TEST (double underscore),
or busted._TEST, or even busted.__TEST. Its just that this time around I
would like to fix it properly.
So is sometable._ALLCAPS against the convention or not?
