We indeed though about putting tests near packages. However, one issue
is that not all tests are related to packages: some are related to the
core infrastructure, and we wouldn't know where to put those tests. And
it would be even more confusing to have some tests in support/testing/
and some tests in package/. So for now, we have simply kept all tests
in support/testing/, until someone comes up with a better idea :-)
