For what value of "good"?
There are already some rudimentary tests in the test subdirectories; they mostly just test that you can load a module. The test functions that drive the "make check" tests are in test-core and they are wrapped and accessible from guile. You could surely catch some regressions by expanding those tests.
That still won't guarantee that a new report option developed for one report will get propagated to all of the other reports.
