We currently use the Test::Unit unit testing framework. This is OK, but has a couple of problems:
  1. You don't get an error report until the end of the testrun
  2. The framwork is complex, and sometimes fails 'mysteriously'
  3. The installation doesn't go cleanly on some platforms
  4. No support for some of the hoopier test modes we need
  5. Not that easy to make a tinderbox
  6. No simple way for a non-SVN dev to use it

It would be better is we had our own tuneable testing framework.

Doesn't run tests from BuildContrib - fixed.
