Agreed. And writing such tests when you have defined API layers between
modules is a lot easier. "Just" write a program (or in simple cases a
GDB script) verifies that the module conforms to the API is is supposed
to implement.

The tricky tests are when you need to test integration between different
modules, as in case of the authentication <-> client HTTP integration.
There you may have to test things from the other way, replacing the
authentication module with test code..
