Hi Ronny,

About reusable test suites, what I have done is to put the required
tests/checks into fixtures or even classes which are importable across
projects and reused there. Could you provide a more specific example of the
problem you see?

About the collection roots, I also didn't quite get what you mean... I
think some examples would also be helpful. :)
