I originally based mine on one of Chris's EUtilities tests, but now 
refer to t/ESEfinder.t since it is small and demonstrates all the major 
tricky things you might have to do - skip remote tests if no 
BIOPERLDEBUG, skip remote tests on remote server failure, skip all tests 
under some condition, fall-back to t/lib for Test::More if necessary.

(Though I just spotted an oops in the latter...)
