We're working on a suite of Selenium scripts for Drupal to do exactly this, and plan on doing that for WordPress as well. We don't have a timeline for this, but I'm hoping to have it done by the end of the summer. We've recently moved to managing our WordPress installations with git; now that updates are a lot easier the next big time saving step is automating testing.
