Okay, not a plugin because you can only run one at a time. However, if
it was some kind of background process like the database updating? If
there where some hooks in the interface system for emulating key presses
and then more hooks for checking the output in a machine readable way.
I'm not saying it is something trivial to implement but test driven
development seems an excellent way of preventing regressions. The manual
way of testing with a list of actions would be a huge leap forward as it
is though.
