Test::Unit reports are a pain to read

Hi,

Does Test::Unit output unreadable test results on purpose?

It's always a huge pain to:
- identify in which test file the error occured
- which test failed
- where in my application code the error was raised

Is there a way to format that output in a better way? Use colors?

How often do you run the tests?

If you run them after the fewest possible edits (ideally one line, up to 10 edits at the most), then the spew becomes less important.

Does autotest read the spew, colorize it, and print that out?

I forgot my other pet peeve with Rails:

Your editor is supposed to parse the test outputs and give each of those details back to you with keystrokes...
