Yeah I figured I was. However, I wanted to get everything down in first and see if I was missing the point or was simply off the mark by a few points.
Your method of understanding test suites is a good idea but sadly would not work where I am. My co-workers would simply make the change and then shotgun debug until it worked. It wouldn't even be a concern except when explaining why its taking so long to make the change.
I see your point about change but not about the test suite. After all, in our environment we need to prove it will work and it won't crash. But still - that is just my opinion :).
