I have a slight preference to not want this. People that are curious
in the executive summary, don't need this information, people curious
in the details, will want the log file anyway. If people really
wants, people that want informtaion from the the full log, can set up
a list archiver, and we can create a mailing list for it, and change
the test script to also email this list with the log. Offhand, I'd
rather let people that want results for a testsuite, just run it
themselves or find someone that can for them.
Once you start including the details of why something failed, it seems
a slippry slope of ever increasing detail. The log file is that
detail, the sum is meant to not include that detail.
