It also checks, that the public unittests can be used on it's
own. (Target publictests in the makefile. Didn't know that too

I know about that problem. Would be good, to have some such
mechanism. Until we have, I'll resort to moving them after the
template and adding a link to the docs, see below.

I moved the unittest outside the template, just to find out, that
there is allready one, which is almost identical. I merged the
two and added a link to the docs, so people can find the example.
Thanks a lot!
