Both changes seem reasonable.

Reason behind the XML file is to be able to parse different arguments to
test case, without having to duplicate code.

Also, people could contribute with XML files, if they don't know how to
code. (with strange arguments causing failures, i.e.)

This should be covered by the concept of suite. We might need to change
OUR concept of suite to be able to cover several applications, as a test
suite is just a collection of test cases.

A regression is just a kind of test suite. Am I wrong?
