Does test code need tests?
That depends on its complexity. Testsuite engines are often complex enough to merit it, but it's hard to figure out a way to test most tests except to test the same thing again in a different way and make sure the results of both tests agree. If you know of a less tiresome way that doesn't require doing the same work more than twice (because thinking of a second way to test something is often harder than thinking of the first), I'm all ears.
