The idea of having regression tests is very good. I see only one
problem: since I don't have the test suite and I'm the one doing most of
the changes in TSVN, those tests will fail more often than not. Because
I can't adjust the tests or write new ones myself, the tests will fail
every time I make a change in TSVN which also changes the UI a little.
And if you get too many error messages, you start to ignore them...
