Yes, that would be very nice indeed. Such a test shell should be
something like the JUnit stuff ( Here are
few things that I'd want in such an app:
  -- it should be a single executable (.exe preferably)
     containing all unit tests
  -- when started, it should go through these steps:
	* display a dialog explaining what it is and what it
	  would do. The dialog would have OK/Cancel buttons
	* if OKed to proceed, the program should extract
	  the tests, run them, and collect results,
	  inspect the system.
	  While doing these, it should inform the user what
	  is going on ("Extracting tests...". "Running test X", etc.)
	  The failed tests should be listed below.
	* when done, it should present the user with 3 buttons:
	    o View Report
	    o Send Report
	    o Cancel
	* on "Send Report", the report should be emailed to a
	  special mailing list, from where it's later picked
	  up by some scripts and analysed.
	* We should be able to disable the UI via a command
	  line switch, to allow for automatic execution.

Yes, that would be the idea. With such a setup, we can have a well-known
URL (such as, and you guys can set
up fully automated download-test cycles at predetermined intervals.
