Easy way to test plugins

Bug Description

It would be nice if there was an easy way for plugin-writers to write simple tests. I envision something like a doctest but with chat sessions instead of python-shell sessions (it would probably need regexes to allow for the fact that most queries have varying responses).

This will help prevent rarely-used plugins from decaying, and provide some executable documentation.

We still don't have the doctest-like aspect, but we do have a framework for testing plugins.
