 > When choosing a framework for acceptance test we did not look for
 WordPress integration as by nature, I think acceptance tests are not
 supposed to deal with system internals. Kind of black box testing.

 Access to internals in acceptance tests is quite important to set up
 fixtures. Say I want to test how some plugin's search box reacts. First I
 want to insert thousands of items and I definitely don't want my
 acceptance test to insert them "by hand".
