Lee,

I expect that almost everyone agrees with you.  What is needed are a 
set of small Unix shell scripts designed to fit into libtiff's 
existing test suite.  These scripts would test libtiff using the 
libtiff utilities.  Besides validating libtiff, this would help 
validate the utilities used.

Care to volunteer?
