No, I hadn't considered that. But perhaps because I wasn't at all aware
of TAP.

It looks like it would be quite trivial to switch to an output format
like that if somebody had something they'd like to hook the notmuch test
suite up to, (but I wouldn't likely switch before).

Looking at TAP, one thing I don't like is that it prints the
success/failure of the test first, before the description of the
test. That's not so nice in the case of a long-running (perhaps
infinitely running) test where you might need to interrupt it, but you'd
still want to know *what* was running for so long.
