Scalar-List-Utils is much more straightforward from the standpoint of
being organized as a small set of easily pass-failable functions with
well-defined expectations.  It might be more desireable if people are
getting up to speed on basic testing principles, etc.

HTML::Tree is much more complex, and might lend itself to some
educational insights into testing large hairy modules.  For that, and
for the fact that I use it but not SLU, I'd put my vote on it.

However, we *might* be able to roll up a complete suite for SLU within
a meeting's time...  perhaps we should start there and consider moving
to H::Tree?
