    I will start looking into the XEmacs testing framework.

Is this a test of programming constructs or a test for GUI usage?
Regression tests for programming constructs are a usual thing, and I
have no doubt that is possible for Emacs.  I think it would be good
for someone to find the people we should ask for papers, so that we
can use the one in XEmacs.

But the suggestion was "to test the GUI invocation".  I don't see how
regression tests for that could possibly work.  Does XEmacs' testing
framework apply to user input operations?
