When I first learned testing, I made the mistake of including the time
for that as a separate line item on an estimate I turned in.  My boss
scratched it off.  Ever since then, I folded "time for testing" into
any estimate I turned in.

After a while, you realize that writing the code and writing the tests
are really the same thing so trying to even consider them as *not* part
of development is a mistake.
