        - the correctness of the returned value is tested by checking
          that the price of a payer (resp. receiver) swaption
          decreases (resp. increases) with the strike.
        - the correctness of the returned value is tested by checking
          that the price of a payer (resp. receiver) swaption
          increases (resp. decreases) with the spread.
        - the correctness of the returned value is tested by checking
          it against that of a swaption on a swap with no spread and a
          correspondingly adjusted fixed rate.
        - the correctness of the returned value is tested by checking
          it against a known good value.
        - the correctness of the returned value of cash settled swaptions
          is tested by checking the modified annuity against a value
          calculated without using the Swaption class.
