Testing is about return on investment.  If it's too much investment for 
too little return to define mocks for your processLeaf function, then 
don't, just let it be used.

I'm of the opinion that mocks are useful, but not nearly as useful or 
necessary as many seem to think.  As a matter of fact I haven't had a 
need to use them yet in three years of testing.
