No it's not. What I'm saying is that PureUnity is something else, and that 
I'd like to expand tests like #expr-test.pd and PureUnity until I can 
merge the two projects.

PureUnity is a set of abstractions that has much higher-level stuff in it, 
that resembles C++ overloading and template specialisation and such, by 
putting $1 in class names, etc. But I didn't put the project to real use.

The idea behind the way I do it, is that PureData's tests deserve to be 
done PureData and it deserves to be comfortable to write and read. There 
is no need to use a separate language.
