With this code you clean up DB to some known state, don't you? So with 
which idea you disagree? Do you want to write cleanup code for each test 
file before it can be safely run independant from other tests? Idea that 
"you don't know state of the system" impel to make errors in tests.

It's not complete test file. It should be ~x3 larger to cover all 
things. Would it be enough to delete global CFs to make shure that all 
works fine as you expect?

Do you want to think about this at all?

Ufff. I just don't understand the reason? I don't want to write cleanup 
code in the beginning of the test files. I even don't want to init data 
in test case, I want run one command/sub/method/require that will reinit 
DB to some predefined state. I don't see any benifits in your approach.

I don't know what to add. ruz shuts up.
