The smallcheck package
SmallCheck is similar to QuickCheck (Claessen and Hughes 2000-) but instead of testing for a sample of randomly generated values, SmallCheck tests properties for all the finitely many values up to some depth, progressively increasing the depth used.
Folk-law: if there is any case in which a program fails, there is almost always a simple one.
Corollary: if a program does not fail in any simple case, it almost never fails.
Other possible sales pitches:
write test generators for your own types more easily
be sure any counter-examples found are minimal
write properties using existentials as well as universals
establish complete coverage of a defined test-space
display counter-examples of functional type
