Although Common Test was created primarly for the purpose of black box
testing, nothing prevents it from working perfectly as a white box testing
tool as well. This is especially true when the application to test is
written in Erlang. Then the test ports are easily realized by means of
Erlang function calls.

Possibly leverage a common reporting framework ? Possibly make it easy to
separate the nightly-build and automated (whitebox) test setup. I'd believe
this is one of the several alternatives that developers have.
