I had the exact same thought. :) I prefer to always run the Guile tests,
and that is simpler than duplicating it in C.
Generating DH pair uses libgcrypt's RNG code, which may be quite slow on
some machines, so it shouldn't be used too much in the self tests.
Avoiding duplicating it in C helps here.
