Better organization needed. Need to replace old driver with new driver for non-Chromium platforms. Our #1 most critical tests. Includes copies of some entire test suites, such as ietestcenter and CSS 2.1 and sputnik.

I created this when I opensourced parts of Apple's PLT infrastructure
right before leaving Apple.  It works, but no on uses it really.  It
mostly serves as example data for run-pageloadtest.

Any file which is under Tools/Scripts/webkitpy/ with the name
*_unittest.py will be assumed to contain python's unittest
module-style tests and will be automatically found and run by
Tools/Scripts/test-webkitpy.  test-webkitpy also knows how to search
for python modules somewhere in WebKit2 (there are some used for some
code autogen) as well as python modules in Tools/QueueStatusServer
(soon to be Websites/queues.webkit.org?)

There are also perl unit tests in Tools/Scripts/webkitperl

There are also WebCore benchmarks in WebCore/benchmarks

There are bindings autogen tests in WebCore/bindings/test IIRC.

That's all I can think of.
