I agree with Peter here.

If you've a bug and want to submit a small program that exibits the bug. you
shouldn't need to download the entire Mercury repository and work out where
in tests/ your fix belongs.  Or maybe this is what gist is for?  Anyway it'd
be nice if that were obvious from the github interface.

We should submit a feature request.
