Builds Automation for Apex Code

I am just wondering if anyone has developed or come across as framework that would extend the unit test automation  that is built into the force.com platform to add capabilities of a Continuous Integrated Testing framework to allow scheduled automated builds and produce some kind of dashboard with statistics. I am thinking something similar to what frameworks like CruiseControl can do.


So, an example scenario would be n ISV, or a System integrator that needs to develop and maintain many force.com applications. In order to promote proper usage and discipline among development teams and encourage Test-Driven Development practices - it would be good to have a tools that would run scheduled builds across multiple dev orgs or sandboxes and provide an overall statistics on test coverage, test failures etc.


I am sure this should not be very hard to build since force.com does expose the API to execute the test methods (which is used for the Ecplise IDE plug-in to display test results). The limitation of the current IDE capabilities is that  you need to execute unit tests manually for each project.

Any luck till now ...
Have you looked at the ant based tools? they should be easy to integrate with CruiseControl.
