Glad to get some feedback ;)

No. It's able to run raw REBOL scripts.

If the creation of your layout is encap into a function, you could 'assert-equal the
expected layout and the produced one.
Of course, working with RUn implies for now a specific design of your scripts.

Yes. You can apply 'run-test to TestCase (which is a collection of developper's tests
testing one functionnality), to TestSuite (which is a collection of TestCases, or a mix

Yes, if you integrate the random generation into your developper's tests.

It's OK. So I can learn what the expectations are of ppl outside our work environnement.
I like that :)
I understand if RUn meets our requirements, there is a lot to adapt to make it work and
useful for other ppl.
Thanks for asking !
