elunit is deprecated in favour of ert, so it should not be considered
for inclusion. When I was investigating the options (~2 years ago),
ert was the clear winner, though I don't remember the details clearly.
Mostly it had to do with having the clearest failure reports. Beyond
that there were not a lot of differences; unit testing is a pretty
straightforward task.

Things may have changed since then.
