I meanwhile found the time to successfully test the selenium 
functionality with the selenese format described above - a few small 
tests worked out fine.

However two questions arose while testing:

1.) How you do you guys create your tests and convert it into this 
special format. So far we create our tests with Selenium IDE and eigther 
  ran them via Selenium-Core (HTML SELENESE) or via Selenium-Server with 
the generated PHP code.
Question arising is: how do you convert your tests into the special 
format required by caretaker-selenium?

2.) We normaly structure our tests so that certain parts like 
reset-test-env, login, logout are written only once and included by each 
single functional test. Do you see a chance to to do the same for the 
caretaker selenium-tests ?

Thanks upfront, regards georg
