[Gnash-dev] GUI testing framework

Gnashers, given the amount of refactoring we'd likely
need to make gnash better, I think it's time to start thinking
about a GUI testing framework.
What we have for actionscript is good enough, but we
need some automated testing for actual user interaction
and display. 

We do have many SWF tests so far, and being able to verify
everything works by just running 'make check' seems a really
top priority to me.

What I envision is some framework allowing us to:

        - manually advance frames
        - generate events
        - dump a snapshot and compare with expected ones

I think it is important to keep this need in mind while developing
further the new 'gui' layout, as we'll likely need to keep a door
open for programmatic events triggering and display dumps.

Comments welcome.
