Yes, it is definitely possible to use a composite datatype in functional
tests, and a number of tools in the Galaxy distribution do so. For
examples on how to define composite inputs, you can look at the tools in
tools/rgenetics/, such as rgGLM.xml or rgHaploView.xml. For the outputs,
rgClean.xml provides an example of comparing a composite output dataset
with the expected test data.

I'd like to be able to write some simple <test> entries for
some of the BLAST+ tools using composite datatypes

If so how? Normal datatypes are loaded into the test history
using using the upload tool - does that mean I first need to
extend the relevant datatypes to allow them to be uploaded?
Example: Run blastp using a small query FASTA file and
a small database, check the output (eg tabular).
