Ms2ger has a simple in-browser runner which we could adapt to use a 
top-level browsing context rather than an iframe, and to use the 
manifest file generated by the script in review at [1].

Yeah, so I forsee this taking longer to output than to actually do the 
run (which I can fully automate for gecko). We should agree on a simple 
format that can be produced by any kind of automated runner and make a 
tool that can turn that format into an implementation report. Something like

[{test_id:string|list, status:string, subtests:[{name:string, 

Seems like it would work fine. The test id would either by the url to 
the top-level test file or the list [test_url, cmp, ref_url] for 
reftests. The harness status would be something like OK|TIMEOUT|ERROR 
and the subtest statuses would be something like PASS|FAIL|TIMEOUT|NOTRUN.

If we do something like this I can likely organise for such output to be 
automatically generated for every testrun on gecko, so producing an 
implementation report for any feature would just be a matter of 
importing the data from the latest nightly build.
