This seems reasonable to me. Justin, do you have any concerns with introducing a dependency in jqUnit on our core framework?

At the time, this was on the basis of increased familiarity by Java and C++ developers with the XUnit-style - for better or worse, we have accumulated a huge codebase of tests expressed in this style, as well as a number of utilities which we find useful in our community (for example, for comparing trees of Fluid Renderer components).

Over the years, the position of jqUnit has become progressively clearer as something we could not expect to reasonably offer or support to groups outside the Fluid community - but I am sending this mail to check on consensus for this point - the pull requests in question are under review now, and so this de facto decision could be reversed if we decided that we really wanted to prepare and support jqUnit as something of wider interest outside Fluid.
