Wait a bit with that - I just posted you about maybe merging those
snippets, and I would like to postpone actually including it with the
binary package until we've discussed that.

He - I also feel awkward about regression testing, but see the clear
benefit for them - and for many more of them, even if f*cking annoying
that they explode build time and - as you mention yourself - build
So I have no other suggestion than look at the existing tests and try
mimic the coding style. Perhaps others can help more here.

You should be able to play with CDBS even without installing it, by
setting variables in your packages similar to how it is done in
cdbs/debian/rules (just use full paths instead of relative ones).
And you should be able to ignore most if not all build-dependencies if
disabling regression tests.
