Role of failtest in ccacn?

I'm a bit confused by failtest, and wondered if you could explain it's
role in Samba?
According to callcatcher, failtest is currently totally unused in Samba,
and a git grep shows no calls.
Additionally, it is causing us some trouble with portability to
platforms without err.h (eg Solaris - SunOS 5.10). We could work around
that, and have it depend on roken (where we have an err.h), but I don't
want to put in that effort unless we have a role for failtest.
(Additionally roken was just made optional, and is now not built if we
have a system MIT krb5).
The idea is certainly neat - looking for failures to check for error
returns from malloc etc - I just want to understand how you plan to use
it so I can deal with it correctly.
