Why not just allow for tests in different languages? What I had in mind
is a generic set of tests, and then a configuration file that specifies
for each media file:

 - local relative path / where to get it from (URL) / md5sum
 - which tests should be run on it (besides standard tests that apply to
all files)
 - for each test: what the expected result is

That way it shouldn't really matter if the test is in python or perl or
C or whatever, as long as it is executable.
