Well, I dearly hope to get to the parallel-tests patches before too
long, and finishe their issues and push them.  They will (at least when
the corresponding automake option is used then) make for somewhat
different (and better IMHO) output (see discussion on automake-patches a
while ago).  But that doesn't mean you shouldn't show your patch, having
more choices can only help.
