Hi Georg,

i see two pissible solutions which could be included in caretaker_selenium.

1. Add a syntax to include external selenium configuration files in the
selenium testconfiguration.

2. Add a record type selenium_testpart to the extension and allow
selecting n of those records in the selenium-tests. The selected
testconfigurations would be executed in the selected order right before
the config in the testconf field is executed.

Both makes sense to me and can be done quite easily. I would prefer to
get patches for caretaker selenium instead of having one more

Regards Martin
