Are there directions for how I can program in a new test interface so I can integrate prove testing into Kyua?

What kind of interface do prove-based test programs have?  Are they
binaries/scripts that you can just run and assume that a 0 exit code
means passed and 1 means failed?  If yes, you'd just funnel them
through the 'plain' interface and they should just work as a first
cut.  (I believe this approach works for most test programs out

But there are some details here:

and more in the kyua-tester manual page and its references.

That said... I'm not sure now if I have detailed the "protocol" in
detail anywhere... and if not, that's something for me to start doing
