hehe... I didn't want to sound pessimistic, which is why I did not
mention this... :-) They don't care much about API stability and they
have never released a version yet... MockObjects 0.09 has been released
and they are already breaking compatibility (I have sent an email to try
to limit the breakage). That said, I don't think it is unmanageable. I'd
still be +1 to use it and create a Gump project to build it from CVS. We
would be able to provide them feedback on API stability! :-)

works for me.
