 phpunit actually running, ha ha).

 Sing it!! Feel free to write tests for any part of BuddyPress you see fit

 groups_get_groups() to the test case? I'm happy to do it if it's useful. I
 do think that testing groups_get_groups() would test pagination more

 The only reason to test wrapper functions like `groups_get_groups()` is if
 those wrappers do something to modify what goes into the wrapped function.
 `groups_get_groups()` doesn't really do anything but set some default
 values. So, it would be non-redundant to write tests that ensure that
 those default values are working correctly. (Eg, `groups_get_groups()`
 with no params should return 20 groups.) That said, as a rule, it's not
 really worth writing these kinds of tests when there are loads of lower-
 level functions that have no coverage at all - especially database
 methods. So, if you've got the hankering, you should go to those instead.
