Thanks very much for the ideas!

It would have been nice if it were like this from the beginning - but
nevertheless this would be a great improvement.

I'm 100% for converting all tests to this form, and mandating it for
future applet tests. I'm sure as the most frequent runner of the test
suite you can agree, at least for mandating it for future tests :)

This method is nice enough, although is it possible to have a
standardized way to see if an exception has caused the applet to stop ? 

I'm very much in favour of adding a clear end marker to the end of tests
rather than duplicating contains/matches. If you don't like a hardcoded
ending message, then, what if we had a closing listener implementation
that takes a single string as an argument, and a string is printed at
the end of the applet. Custom closing listeners could always also be
