Please, feel free to use it... :-)

Well, now that you say, if I remember correctly I made an small
modification in order to be able to launch an individual test... But 
I don't really remember! (It was last January). I will check it
tomorrow and let you know. 

But yes, when I said "modified" I should have said "extended" or
something else...

Yes, yes. You're right. I will check and let you know.

Right. Good to know. Sorry. Well, I think "pnunit" will run on top
of standard NUnit. If not I will let you know the changes, but as far
as I remember we are just building on top. I will include the license files
of both products on the zip files. Sorry again... :-(

Ok, let me know.
