         The skies begin to boil; Nature collapses into the screaming
         Void. And, finally, someone writes a decent open source GUI
         testing and automation library. DOGTAIL is a Python library
         for anything that supports the accessibility framework
         AT-SPI - which means, um, GNOME. (But KDE soon.) With it you
         can use procedural or OOPy Python to drive almost any Gnome
         app, plus Open-Office, and Mozilla-based apps like Epiphany
         (so you can automate web and test applications too). Driving
         code is ridiculously tight: you can automatically kick up a
         browser, enter a form, and rip out the resulting text with a
         just a few lines. It can drive multiple apps with all your
         hands tied behind your back. It can search out applications
         based on their package name, not the binary. It can send
         keystrokes to anything you damn well want. Your GUI is about
         to become posessed with dozens of your own private bots.
