[IronPython] Switching DLR tests from MSTest to NUnit

I have an experience with xUnit.net (http://xunit.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=WhyDidWeBuildXunit&referringTitle=Home), so I would personally prefer that one. It has a pretty good VS integration. I haven't used NUnit. If you prefer it I don't have objections.

One comment on the placement of the framework dlls - a better place than /Runtime/Tests/Lib would be /Util/NUnit.

Subject: [IronPython] Switching DLR tests from MSTest to NUnit

There's a pull request (https://github.com/IronLanguages/main/pull/10)
pending that changes the unit tests for the DLR from MsTest to NUnit.
The advantage of doing this is that NUnit test can be run without having Visual Studio installed on the machine, which will make it much easier to run tests in a CI environment, and I presume for running on Mono as well. The downside is that MsTest has an integrated test runner in VS, and NUnit doesn't out of the box (but there are some available).

Since I don't work on the DLR code, I wanted to make sure this change is acceptable to those that do. Tomas, Dino - thoughts?
