Wow, these are great news. Thanks a lot!

I will certainly use the framework for the tutorial I am currently
preparing. This basically means that it will be much easier to review
the exercises, e.g. the students just run the tests I have written ;-)

What I found out is that testing a WATask component doesn't work.
Maybe this is because of the redirect the implementation of WATask is
doing? Though I don't know if this is just a VisualWorks issue.

I wonder why SeasideTesting doesn't directly create an instance of
WARequest and pass it to "WADispatcher default handleRequest:
aRequest"? Going even deeper into the framework would allow to avoid
having to parse the XHTML and to directly manipulate and test a
document tree.
