For me, this is the most important task, becaus it will give me the
needed control in team development (no checkin without test),
that enables our developers to have a more group oriented
view on the sources - it's all teamwork, everyone can change my code
(if it runs all tests without failure).

See. I need it.

Getting better and better!

... which have all +1 from the relevant people, or did I missed something?
