Bug Description

This is rather a feature request. Look at below test:

[TestCase(10)] public void TestMethod(short a) { }

That looks quite valid at the first glance but it of cause failed. The right syntax is

[TestCase((short)10)] public void TestMethod(short a) { }

Same problem goes to float type and/or Values attribute.

Would it be possible for NUnit to have the TestCase and Values attributes to convert the type based on the method signature?

See http://groups.google.com/group/nunit-discuss/browse_thread/thread/22898e500f20351b/ff87c7d3169be55b?hl=en&lnk=gst&q=short+type+in+parametrized+test+%09%09%09%09#ff87c7d3169be55b

NUnit already does conversions but it won't make conversions that
could result in
the truncation of values. So it will convert short to int but not int to short.

We could change that, but I'd like to see what other folks think, so
I'll forward
this request to the mailing list.
