Is there a plan for a library to be used by programs that aren't
written in the teaching languages?  `check-expect' is nicely
lightweight, but it's hard to recommend its use when it has no
non-teaching-language documentation or module.

I think the last time I looked, it wouldn't be too hard to make a typed version.
