It's written automatically to file it seems. See my previous message,
the xml is written to "add.output". It does have a few non-xml things
appended though:

<TestLog><TestSuite name="Tests"><TestCase
*** No errors detected


Pulse has a built in boost.test output parser. It only requires XML
though, not sure if I can get it to work without removing the non-xml parts.

Hmm. If Pulse doesn't pick up tests because of the non-xml data this
might not even be an issue. Will see if I can figure that part out.
