Merge test-including default-template #37

This is a more elaborate default-template that

  1. Includes separate src and test directories
  2. Includes a shell script that runs the test suite in sbcl
  3. Includes a .travis.yml file that allows the project to be trivially built in CI

I'm mainly submitting this because of inaimathi/house@262ceba#r45065608 (which tells me that it might be a good idea in general to standardize project structure because there are non-obvious ways to mess it up).

The points of contention I can see are related to the default choices (Should we use prove? Should we use travis? Should we assume sbcl?).


  1. The defaults can be overriden as always (that was the point of the default-template addition :p)
  2. encouraging and simplifying testing/CI is worth picking reasonable but somewhat arbitrary defaults
  3. A plurality of the CL community seems to use sbcl in any case
