The complete test suite has a coverage of ~99.7%. It is publicly
available, like the Lua souce code. Please feel free to contribute
concrete code that increases its coverage and runs in a reasonable
amount of time. (We have one extra test file that covers a few more
lines, but takes dozens of minutes to run.)
