I'd like to think I have that done :). The major thing that subunit
*doesn't* do is lots of arbitrary metadata - and that because the
unittest TestCase->TestResult API has no facility to do this either.

I'm happy to extend subunit with arbitrary interlaced streams to allow
capturing profiling data, stdout, stderr and other things.. *IF* there
is a realistic hope we will be able to express these in the
TestCase->TestResult API. If we can't, then subunit stops being a good
fit with unittest, and as that is it's raison d'etre...
