However, this seems like it would be fairly commonly useful and easy
enough to do in the canonical test-driver script. So, any chance of
adding it as a standard feature? Any reasonable way of enabling it would
be fine, e.g., a flag that can be added to [AM_]LOG_DRIVER_FLAGS.

Take care since some test logs could be megabytes in size.

BTW, as with that post, I'm primarily interested in this because of
automated build environments where all that is (easily) seen is the log.
Secondarily, in a big build tree, and with srcdir!=builddir, it can be
annoying just to navigate to the correct test-suite.log file. Thus it
would be nice to just have it up front.

It would be good to be able to enable this via a standard configure script option.
