Sounds reasonable.  Junit might still be broken.

If that's the case, I'd recommend declaring suite() abstract.

Also, for ease of use, the javadocs could show the simplest
implementation of suite().   At first I thought I was going to have to
manually add each new test to this method before I realized that
TestSuite(Class) would do this for me.

   public static Test suite() {
       return (new TestSuite(<YourTest>.class));

I'll also try to clean up the MyFaces subclasses when I get a chance
so they're not demonstrating the wrong approach by returning null.
