I don't have a good answer to this question, which is why I didn't
suggest unit tests.

I think that, at worst, a test that fires up a master, requests a
page, and asserts that it returns 200 OK would be worthwhile for the
effort it would require, since it would exercise the console code at
least a little bit.

I'll see if I can whip that up, and also stare at the code for a while.
