This is not a good direction IMO. This breaks clear separation between test log
and report streams. We also do not want duplication of information in two
streams. We should consider an approach where report stream is being produced on
a fly (in parallel) during test execution. This might be a bit tricky and is not
always desirable, but can be enables by special command line switch.
