To be fair, a test stack isn't always required. They're actually pretty 
flexible about that. What I meant in my post was that if the test does, 
in fact, need a stack in order to adequately report it, I tend to 
procrastinate because I'm almost always in the middle of something else. 
If there's a workaround I just use it and the reporting may or may not 
happen later on.
