There isn't a fork at all, I don't think.  I think just the sources are in
svn.  Not sure which version of sources, although Sebastien or Gonzalo might
know.  I think one of them did the most recent import.

I quickly reviewed the extensibility feature a few days ago and didn't have
time to delve into it yet.  Let me have a look at that later and see if it
allows for a better solution.

Absolutely.  Right now we do not need to change nunit at all for what we are
going to do.  We are only using the wonderful [Category] feature as per
Miguel's suggestion.  Perhaps Rafael and I can come up with a better plan
after we have time to study the new nunit version to help with automagic bug
