I haven't looked at this very closely but it sounds like a very high  
maintenance way of doing testing. Every time I've built user interface  
tests that relied on what things look like the maintenance cost has  
been too high to sustain them. Essentially, minor code tweaks results  
in hours of updating test cases. I imagine with this method that would  
include creating new screen shots that are being compared against. I'm  
wary of writing tests that compare against static images.
