One idea is that we setup, using the existing perl test framework, a sort of "catch all" test, where the framework simply runs all scripts from a subdir via system() (or whatever), and the reports success or failure.

It would require, however, some sort of process since those scripts themselves would need to be universal enough that all testers can run them.
I may give that a whirl... I have some nodejs scripts that test websockets and I may see how/if I can "wrap" them within the test framework.
