I'm still interested; I just don't have the time right now to help
lead this initiative:  

        * Verify with Tom Tromey (tromey@redhat) that junit is okay
          and he wouldn't be upset about a framework change.

        * To find out how gcc/libjava run their tests and prototype
          something to see if it can be compatible with or without tweakage.

        * If finding junit is compatible, going through the process of
          creating a branch to work on in Mauve to avoid disrupting
          testing on the main trunk and converting all the tests.
