You know, it was not that handy for me, either.  I do not
need that, but the numbering does not make too much sense
without the total -- all the fuss happened to provide sort
of a "progress bar" for Dimitry.  You will do it, won't you?

All right.  Instead of (test begin) simply put starts for

Not really the same.  Tests can also be missing because the
tester had to remove them, and I would like to discriminate
in this respect.  See XP_robi for example.

No idea.  But the best would be to recover the error code
and/or message somehow, and include in the report.  Like
waitpid() on Posix.  Is the tester has to click a couple of
times, then be it...  It is surely impossible from a batch
script, but since you have a C framework, let us try to make
the most out of it!

Heh, I think it is.  Glad you like it.
