[lively-kernel] RFC: Tests for parts

I really like the idea of having tests for parts in the PartsBin. Personally, 
I would prefer proposal 2 from the wiki. I was also wondering whether it would 
be possible to use the tags of Morphic scripts and pass the test framework as 
an argument, e.g.

this.addScript(function incFoo() {

this.addScript(function setUp() {
	this.foo = 23;

this.addScript(function testFoo(assert) {
	assert.equals(this.foo, 23);
	assert.greaterThan(this.foo, 23);

I think this should not be too hard to implement and it would be possible to 
write the tests and the scripts both in the object editor.
