Get rid of the test.  Perhaps leave it commented out and put a comment in
the method so somebody could rebuild it with the check in, but I'll bet it
doesn't happen too often.

Out project goals were lighter, faster with an easier but still with a
correct api.  These goals are not totally compatible it would seem but I
think the lighter, faster and easier is more important for most of us.
