Cool, the more testing frameworks are  supported by the tooling, the more
people will actually auto-test -- I hope:-)

Yes, sometimes I am an optimist:)

there any relation?

Yes, we definitely should have basic support for testing frameworks! I
fully agree with that.

Having a second test plugin would help with pushing this forward: Designing
a generic API based on one implementation rarely works in my experience.
