I have been suggesting to look into QMTest (, which
I happen to maintain), to drive the regression testing. It does allow the storage
of test results in databases, and it keeps track of how tests results evolve over

In fact, one of the more important features (which, unfortunately, make it hard
to hook it up with, is that it allows the introspection of a 'test database':
You can look at the test database (test suites, test sub-suites, as well as individual
tests, test results, etc.) without actually running them. This is good for robustness,
and allows to easily generate reports, involving different dimensions (across test suites,
across platforms, across time, etc.).

Oh, and QMTest makes it easy to run tests in parallel, dispatching to a compile farm, etc.

I sincerely believe that, no matter whether QMTest will be seriously considered in
this context, the concepts it builds on, definitely should.
