Hello Jon.

Thanks for your answer.

I understand that ability to run tests without windows box is an
advantage. I thought to commit expected results in similar way we did
with XML tests.

By explicit "update" mechanism do you mean any particular technique?

Also, how do you suggest to solve the .NET bug problem?
