This document provides a set of "torture tests" for implementers of
the Signaling Compression (SigComp) protocol.  The torture tests
check each of the SigComp Universal Decompressor Virtual Machine
instructions in turn, focusing in particular on the boundary and
error cases that are not generally encountered when running
well-behaved compression algorithms.  Tests are also provided for
other SigComp entities such as the dispatcher and the state handler.
