Yeah, that sounds like a perfect fit for Ensemble.  We've actually
been doing exactly that already just with the initial tests.  Clint
has been developing the principia repository at Launchpad [1] which
already contains some bootstrapping formulas.

We'd be happy to discuss further how we can make Ensemble help more
with that kind of testing.
