This is the best forum available.

When I wrote this sentence, I was toying with some ideas myself but
got distracted by other things that took a higher priority.

Also I know of a company who was developing a testing toolkit
(eventually to become open sourced) where AntUnit might play a role
(but they seem to require Ant 1.6.x support).  I can't and won't say
more, but I know some of their developers are reading this list.

AFAIK nobody is actively researching this, but yes, it is a very
reasonable use of AntUnit.
