I think that putting it like that causes a lot of misunderstanding. CUT
is not testing. CUT is about generating snapshots from testing.
Actually, it should be "Constantly Usable Testing Snapshots". It doesn't
really increase the usability of Testing itself, since it is (mostly)
working around deficiencies of testing by doing snapshots.
