I don't know how/if the zope testrunner starts a server that can be 
reached with a browser or not. If it does start a server that can be 
used in Firefox I'd be able to run som Selenium scripts (Remote 
Controlled or manually) and when I'm happy with the browser stuff I'd 
stop the testrunner which would reset the database/zodb again.

Basically, having to manually create a fixture for running Selenium 
scripts is a bore. There's got to be an easier way.
