I'd never seen the subunit format; I don't like it as much (TAP is 1 per line)
but I don't really mind since:
1) We already use tap2subunit for the perl tests, and 
2) The libtap interface could easily also produce subunit output.

I'll create something which spits out subunit, and post once it's don
(am on vacation for three weeks, so might be a while!)
