[racket] eli-tester (was "Using Racket to solve Professor Layton puzzles")

I noticed that Jay used in his code an undocumented
module "tests/eli-tester" to write his test cases.

I liked the syntax, very convenient in some circumstances. However, I could
only find uses of that inside a comment
in ./collects/scribble/html/resource.rkt

Is it so hacky to be hidden and undocumented?
