    130 * '''Never use actual output as expected result output in a test.''' This defeats the purpose of the unit tests, as they now test nothing and just become a maintenance headache. Instead, use what you expect.
     130* '''Don't copy and paste actual output as expected result output in a unit test.''' This defeats the purpose of the unit tests, as they now test nothing and just become a maintenance headache. Instead, use what you expect. The only case for doing this is for a back-to-back test with old code when no unit tests exist.
