Behat testing should be as easy as unit testing

Right now Behat testing isn't used very much - it's harder to get running than it should be, and is quite slow.

We should try and get Behat testing to be more popular by improving the ease with which tests can be written.

        I agree. I've started using Behat testing on various projects, and it's great to have it.
        I'd love to add it to modules as well, but there's just so much boilerplate code that needs to be written to get it going.

        Codeception looks like a fantastic testing framework which is a layer on top of PHPUnit and Behat. (http://codeception.com/)

        It's been on my list to try it out with SS and see how feasible an upgrade is before proposing it.
