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.

Moreover, the tests we have don't have a way (AFAIK) to test for the
results of a report. I think we can test that a report loads. We might
even be able to test that a report runs. But I don't think we actually
test the output of the report to make sure that e.g. the report
generates the "correct" output.
I don't know how we could change that.
