I believe this was added because the unit tests used to clutter up the
IDE because there were so many. But now they are in folders so it
doesn't matter for VS, it may still matter for XCode. I vote to remove
it if no one is using it. If we actually do have a usecase for it it
definitely needs to be cleaned up.
