This is nice. When we did web testing before I moved to Cincom we 
utilised the known properties of the server side code instead of 
bouncing back to the web browser itself. Mostly because of:
a) Speed of running the tests
b) Ease of writing the tests

In the end we wanted to do testing like this - so I whole heartedly 
support this idea. It's going on to the project backlog. Thanks for 
bringing it to my attention.
