I am working with some friends on this in my spare
time. XP Dojo automatically compiles all erlang files
in or below a given directory, then detects and runs
unit tests and acceptance tests. You can run it as a
continuous server, which detects new or modified files
and automatically recompiles and reruns the tests.

Right now they are a lot simpler, but if there is an
interest we could look at adding support for tests
written for the OTP test_server.

We'll make an announcement when we feel it's ready for
public consumption.
