We have thought about using simpletest for Drupal contrib modules  
that ship with CivicSpace.  But embracing expensive processes without  
the backing of the Drupal community is really difficult.  So if  
anyone is serious about using unit tests I suggest we start first  
with writing simple tests for core modules.  Once these tests are  
shown to be useful by dev's to test their core patches, I think it  
will catch on with contribs.

We did this with admin >> help >> modulename for Drupal core and it  
seems to be catching on for contribs.

My two cents.
