  Jan and I talked about this a few times and I started a branch[1] along that idea. So far
all I did was make a copy of the then current Futon tests into
test/javascript/test  and started looking at the small handful that fail. 

   The browser tests are great (any test is good) but they have too many browser  dependent
quirks, or at least I assume that because of the pleasant surprise
one gets when they all run. So I think the goal of these runner tests would be some sort of
official HTTP API suite that's part of "make check". Would you agree?
If so I'm happy to take this on.

   Also I've found eunit to be helpful in BigCouch and wondering how hard it would be to support
eunit in couchdb. Having tests in the modules is very good for not
only testing but also to help with reading and understanding what the code does.
