Good point. I guess I can change the warning message.

You can't have it both ways. Either you want your test case to be
reported as aborted or as as passed.

You can 2 options:

1. You can fail some REQUIRE level check and thus abort the test case.
2. You can detect that the test case did not run any assertions as a
condition that it was aborted by fixture setup

In both case I do not recommend to parse plain text output, but to
switch to XML report and it's process it.
