I am speaking from memory here since I haven't had a chance to mess
with the codebase in a while now (should hopefully change soon):

- you would need to extend the schema with a separate table for the test
  cases (if you could make it non-MySQL specific it would be even

- the main issue is the 'running' part, not every Linux or Unix (let
  alone Windows) machine has the same paths and such for running certain
  scripts, so does 'running' mean you can take the testcase and download
  it to your local box and run it, or is it meant to be run on a main
  testcase/build server?

So I would like to hear your ideas about this. :)

It all depends on your approach to be honest.

(btw you might want to check the recent archives, since I remember some
postings about this very same subject in the not too distant past.)
