Extending unit testing frameworks with the Translation Tester

While I’ve been working on my TranslationTester project, I’ve been wondering whether the tool should either be a stand-along tool, or whether it would make sense to contribute it to one of the many unit testing frameworks out there (NUnit, MbUnit, xUnit). I don’t think it’s ‘frameworkey’ enough to contribute to the main products, but perhaps it could be contributed as some sort of extension/plugin etc.

My current thinking is that I’ll create it framework-independent, and then maybe write simple wrapper classes that allow it to be used in each framework in a more integrated fashion, e.g. Define a base TestFixture class for NUnit.
