I like the name testRunner.

I know Dave (Hyatt) suggested to cleanup the render tree dump format to get rid of all hacks and tweaks we've added over years, and my preference is to combine all these efforts and put new types of tests in trunk/RegressionTests. We'll move tests from LayoutTests to RegressionTests as we convert. We'll get rid of LayoutTests directory once all tests have been converted to use testRunner and new render tree dump format.
