sounds interesting. So essentially you have a "warm" JVM waiting for requests 
to do junit tests? Will multiple calls to junit task reuse the same JVM or is 
it just different tests that are dispathed to other JVM?

Also could this be generalized to a general architecture to execute other 
java tasks from a JVM or is it intrinsically tied to junit?

Also when/if you decide it is good enough would you mind placing it in junit2 
package to avoid ocnfusion and all that or maybe xjunit (extended junit) or 
exjunit or whatever ;)
