I have also added a long-overdue README explaining the approach taken in
far more detail, that should help you (and others) to understand what I
have been up to ;) The browsertests only make sure all the actual
control panels work, but do not explicitly test any of the
infrastructure, so they might not be that helpful.

+1 on merging it (I don't want you to loose any time again on handling
branches ;)

As long as you don't break anything, you can just work on the trunk of
plone.app.controlpanel ;) It's not yet in any releasable state anyways.
