Testing in Perl 6

So, here's my first hesitant step to building Perl test code (specifically Perl 6 in this case, but I've never used any of the Test modules for Perl 5, either).

Simple and short, but with it I learned a significant limitation of my STEP extract script and turned up a Rakudobug. All in all, a most successful first foray into testing Perl code.

Now all I need to do is figure out the proper directory structure, and how to automatically build a makefile with a "test" target, and get the hacked version of Test.pm which properly handles planless testing.
