As David said, it would be hard to do so with a normal regtest.  Now,
it's theoretically possible to add a separate directory which produced
regtest output (including error messages)... in some ways, I saw
something similar to this in the lilypond-book regtest patch.

However, this involves fairly advanced screwing around with the build
*and* GUB, which frankly is not something I would wish on my worst

IMO, this falls into the "ridiculously too much work for the benefit"
category.  If somebody wants to add the idea to the issue tracker,
sure, but it gets priority-Postponed.
