At UW-Madison's CS department (my day job) one of the groups has done
a lot of work with "fuzz testing" . They write code to
automatically generate random input to any kinds of programs you wish
to test. It's a great way to catch bugs in your error handling.
Such tests would be fantastic for all aspects of the Drupal UI (FAPI,
menu/path system, settings pages, etc), and should be relatively easy
to automate. Any volunteers?
