Apache Wookie got 2 that failed, and the rest couldn't run - I think  
because WindowWidget is not required for all UAs to conform, but is  
required as a prerequisite by the test.

After some tweaking I got some slightly more useful results... so its  
definitely a start!

We've been using this for testing up until now, which is just hand  
crafted test cases and isn't generated from IDL:
