I think the idea came from DUnit, though FPCUnit was heavily based on
the JUnit design. DUnit2 and FPTest also use the listeners concept. In
fact the latter two uses interfaces a lot more than FPCUnit, making some
extensions much easier to implement.

I believe other xunit frameworks have similar ideas. Each test framework
seems to use the best [most suitable] features of the language in question.

eg: Object Pascal based test frameworks use published properties, C# and
Java uses class attributes etc to define test methods.
