[Webtest] JWebUnit style plugin

The ability to test both in a simulated client (HTMLUnit) and a variety of "real" clients with a single test.  If my application fails with IE, I can complaint all I want about its noncompliance with publish standards, but the majority of my users will still be angry with me.  Selenium is great for this kind of testing.  Of course, I may want to run continuous testing with HTMLUnit because it doesn't posses a browser.
