That's actually *really* nice. :-)

Feature requests (all of which are easy individually except the last 

* Fix the width of the window so it doesn't jitter around when 
displaying different length test names at the bottom
* Support for *showing* numbers of skipped and expected failure tests
* When test discovery starts perhaps print a message to the window 
showing the directory discovery was started in
* Help and about are wrong and can probably just go...
* An 'advanced' panel that lets you parameterise the discovery (change 
the glob pattern for finding tests for example)


All the best,
