As I described things, the default (i.e. if the user doesn't provide a
substitute) would just call unit_test_main, so that the right thing
happens if the user does nothing in this area. It doesn't seem
unreasonable to me to require that if a user *does* provide a substitute,
that this substitute must call unit_test_main, i.e. make that part of
the substitution contract.

On the other hand, your global fixture approach looks fine too, and is
probably easier to document. So I'd say go with that.
