Ok, let's completely abandon the idea of automatically unit testing  
patches.  Instead let's have a block on http://drupal.org/project/ 
issues that has a file upload.   The file upload connects to a server  
that is available to unit test the patch.

It spits back a test result number with the time the test was run and  
the results of the test.


Instead of spending all this effort automating some thing simple we  
focus on making it a valuable service to the developer community.   
The person who posts the patch can just provide a link to the unit  
test result.

Keep It Simple S******
