Sure.  Some time ago I proposed something like a JSON file, something

test_foo => {
  "command" : "make -C src/test/blah check",
  "save_output" : [ "src/test/blah/server.log", "src/test/blah/regress*.log" ]

as I recall, Andrew said that he didn't like JSON very much but that the
idea made sense to him.
