I agree about the console testrunner. That should move to FPC.
My argument for submitting updates still hold.  What if I submit
something in FPCUnit (core) that would break the GUI TestRunner.  I
have to submit the FPCUnit core changes first. Wait till it's been
applied, then submit the Lazarus updates. While the Lazarus updates
have not been applied the GUI TestRunner is broken.  This would have
happened again a few weeks ago, but my patch still hasn't been applied
in either project. :-(

This must definitely be done!  I can live with the GUI Runner being
broken, but Console Runner not.

Please note:
  I'm just raising some questions Darius had.  I'm still happily
sitting on the fence.  :-)
I can see positive and negative things either way.
