FWIW, I recently commissioned Thomas, the Google SoC developer on simpletest
project, to write a suite of tests for the organic groups module. Those
tests will be available by end of month.
I'm pretty happy with the simpletest framework in Drupal. I might be biased
since I wrote it though. The Google SoC students did a great job extending
it. And the simpletest project itself is magnificient.

great idea. start small. pick a simple module and write a few tests. No need
to think of this as a huge commitment.

these already exist, they just need some attention because so much has
changed in recent months.
