Silverlight testing: Watin vs Selenium comparison

I was wondering how well these web test frameworks (Watin and Selenium) work for Silverlight UI testing. Have anyone tried it on a project? Are Watin or Selenium well suited for Silverlight?.

I can't talk to Watin or Selenium with Silverlight, but I have played with White, which is a layer on top of the MS Automation Framework, and I have liked what I have seen thus far:

I should also add that we defer the majority of our UI behavior testing to unit tests using the MVVM pattern. It doesn't test EVERYTHING, but it gets us 95% of the way there.

Functional testing frameworks like Watin/Selenium/White should be used in conjunction to unit tests.
