[slightly OT]
Just FYI, the fix of bug #41215 ("pkg test feature") solved the problem for the default branch: "pkg test" tests all functions in all arch-independent directories and subdirectories of a package, including private/
Unfortunately it hasn't been applied to the stable branch that will become 6.1.0.
A related patch for extracting tests for compiled package functions (bug #41298) is still awaiting review.

There are unit tests in inst/private/tbl_delim.m, which can not be exercised.  It would be more rational to move them into
inst/tblwrite.m.  This is what the patch attached to this bug report does.  It has been applied to the Debian package octave-statistics since 2012.
