I hope there will be an import mechanism for xml;). I will check these asap.

Sure. You can find my eclipse project for moving from bentoweb to task 
force on 
http://source.aegean.gr/svn/projects/bentoweb/evlach-testsuites/. Look 
in build.xml for target "list".
I use two xslts. One for listing my tests in an xml format (see 
listtests.xsl) and another for converting to text for pasting on wiki.
