There are five data types supported in the Gaggle:
tuples (environments in R)
clusters (typically, row names and associated column names, selecting a submatix)
A good test of an installation, therfore, is to send each of these data types from R to
an ‘echo goose’, and to make sure that the returned
data is identical to that which was sent out. This function loads the
RUnit package, assumes that a boss and echo goose are running
and properly configured, then calls one function for each data type.
