My wish for 2006

Well, one of my wishes, anyway...

I'd like to see someone take Watir and attach it to a Ruby on Rails back end that would hold test data, test-running instructions, test results, and metadata like requirements or defects linked to particular tests. Picture something like Mercury TestDirector+WinRunner, but with Rails+Watir.

Jonathan Kohl agrees with me that it would be possible, but it would take some real effort to prove that such a thing would work. I'm not sure I'm bold enough to start such a project myself.
