Since yawt may be used as a part of cxtest framework, how about that,
Dan? It may be less work to set up the cxtest pool than to create a new
testing framework.

If cxtest shows some great architectural weaknesses, Vincent Povirk and
me can do the necessary infrastructure tailored to Direct3D specific

Webserver & PHP for frontend, perl/bash/SQL for backend.

We shall discuss the requirements in more exact manner.

	1. Define demo packages
	2. Define testing environment configurations
	3. Define tracked results data items (SQL db architecture)

The resulting infrastructure shall be human independent in following terms:
	human will 
		prepare a test 'package' (one application)
		prepare test units (individual tests)
	machine will 
		run the test units per package
		interpret the results if possible
		store the results and run logs (with screenshots)

This will allow for automated test runs at given time.
AFAIK cxtest passes all defined requirements above.

I'll try to play with cxtest and report back, preferably with some
testing setup.
