Web testing with twill

Moving towards version 0.8; just added a simple unit-testing structure that works via 'nose'. Running tests just got a whole lot easier...

Also spent a not-so-productive half-day working through a number of issues (ChangeLog). Now that I'm starting to use it for more complicated sites, I'm finding more problems. Whee...

Someone mentioned an interest in making it easier to integrate twill with unit testing frameworks. Now that I'm using 'nose', I am starting to get a better idea of what that might entail: fork() plus a kill() at the end is what I'm using. Hmm.

More O'Reilly publicity, this time via Michele Simionato's article on Web testing.

Oddly enough, it appears twill is written in Perl. Heh. Well, it's a 'P' language, at any rate...

I'm still working on what "peste e corna" means -- "pestilence and corn"? -- but people should be aware that my intense hatred of Zope stems from experiences with Zope 1. Or maybe Zope 2. Not sure. At any rate, I haven't looked at it for a loooong time. It's probably great now...
