You're describing at-spi¹, which is an accessibility framework that
provides introspection on GUI widgets. There's an existing GUI test
framework called Dogtail², written in Python, that uses the widget data
from at-spi in order to allow easy addressing of widgets for writing
GUI tests for GTK apps.
It would be a great project for someone to look into what it takes
to get Dogtail working on the XO. It has some gnarly dependencies
(bonobo, corba..) but there wouldn't be a need to put them in every
build, just builds that we want to run a test harness against.
