Alright; these two are now done in github.

The code is not very pretty (OK, not pretty at all) but it should now
be possible to relatively easily bolt on JUnit XML formatting code.
Still have to integrate HTML output generation into the new code
structure to ensure that this is true.

If you want to try that's cool, but if you can provide me some sample
outputs and a pointer to the schema I will do this sometime soon.

Indeed. But let's focus on BSDCan for now ;-)
