[Windmill-dev] Hi, and a minor suggestion

I'm hoping that Windmill will be more pleasant than Selenium.
(Selenium has its okay aspects, but I've also had a lot of pain with
app that uses Python on the server. (Actually most of the app is
be able to launch tests from the command line, have it fire up the
server and run the tests against localhost.
I have a suggestion (and can provide a patch, if desired). I'm using
zc.buildout for my project, and that does a good job of creating a
controlled installation environment. It uses the setuptools
console_scripts entry point to build scripts that are guaranteed to
have the correct versions of packages. The windmill script, at least,
can be converted to this style script trivially. Any reason to not do
Also, I have a curiousity: I've been using Nose for more than 2 years
now, and this is the first I've seen of functest. I'm curious if
anyone has done a comparison to what functest does vs. what nose does.
Thanks! Looks like a great project and I look forward to digging in
and writing some tests (later today or early tomorrow).
