Definitely. I agree.
Instalatron was designed for our Anaconda fork, where code does change
a lot, but UI does not change very often.
That being said, recording a new session takes from 5 to 10 minutes
with some practice.
In any case, I believe that rewriting the test script automatically to
support a new theme if UI behaviour (i.e. keyboard navigation) has not
changed can be easily acomplished.
Thanks a lot for the feedback, my head is now full of new ideas to implement :).
