The complicated stuff will be the tests themselves, and the entire -gui
testing scheme (backend+stuff for defining event sequences and testing
rendering output). Those things are unique.

It's possible, but making things generic takes more work than making
something specific. :) My primary interest lies in creating a test suite
for core/, but once the architecture is in place, I could look at
extending it.

The framework is geared towards testing libraries, so GDL2 should be
easy to do, and unit tests for parts of apps are pretty straightforward.
Testing full apps would take a lot more work, although it is a logical
thing to use the testing backend for.
