When you say "all" yes all the ones converted run and pass -- with exception to a 
few which I will get back to later they've been commented out.

The old test suite used Google Test which is C++.  The development model of the 
project changed to one incompatible with the project.  Right now I am converting 
it all to C using Unity.

The 'new' test suite involves re-arranging it into a more suitable format to 
edit and test.  We need to be setup better for regression testing as well.

It's complicated since the C++ code uses classes and function overloading which 
is going to require a lot of refactoring.  I'm leaving these ones to the end

have this done 'soon' barring any strangeness which I've already hit..
