I don't know, the test-driven development is really good thing, but I 
find that test cases often need to be more involved than an example. 
Often test cases are written to illustrate a bug, and this usually 
involves doing something that is probably not a typical thing to do for 
end users. Plus pleople would need to know about JUnit's assert(...) 
calls to make sense out of them. A good set of examples is still a good 
thing, even in the presense of test cases.
