Subject Re: testng.xml and selenium

I attached the patch to:

Just in case anyone wants to try it out.

Howard said that he saw a significant slowdown, but that didn't happen in my
tests on LInux.  Perhaps it is slower on OS X or Windows.

I think there should be a way to specify what WebDriver you want to use from
testng.xml or something.  If that is the case, it might be possible to test
the bulk of the tests in HtmlUnit while running the tests that are looking
for finer points of the GUI or JS implementations in several other browsers.

I'm hoping there will be enough interest to either get this update included
or at least see if we can recreate and identify what slow down issues Howard
was running into.
