Test failures are shown on the CLI by default. What is not shown is
the output of the test cases. It'd be too verbose and would prevent
having any sense of progress of the execution.

Making it an option to display the output during "make test" is a
reasonable request but it's also non-trivial at the moment. Feel free
to file a feature request for this.

We should actually just make "kyua report" show the stdout and stderr,
and this is easier to do. Having to resort to report-html is... just

I just haven't thought about a UI for it.  Maybe "kyua report
--show-output [test cases]" would be good enough?
