I'm so glad you're taking on this work.

Any idea when it might be ready?
Just out of curiosity, what kind of program with the test runner be?  C++ or
a script of some sort?

It seems like a one-man job, but if you want any help, please let me know.

Meanwhile, I've got a VMWare virtual machine set up to do Linux, such that
I'm thinking I'll develop on Windows, but copy over the changes and run the
tests on Linux, at least until your test runner is ready on Windows.  I like
the Visual Studio debugger too much...

Question: I just ran the tests on Ubuntu Linux, and it gave a message
saying: "Expected Failures (17):" followed by a list of 17 files, presumably
the tests that had failures.  So basically this means that as long as the
number of files listed matches the number given in the message, the overall
test is considered successful, right?  I know this is probably obvious, but
I want to be sure.  Perhaps a note about this in the "Testing" section on
the hacking page would be a good idea.
