OpenEmbedded is carrying a patch to add an option to autotest scripts that changes their output format to match the output of automake test suites.  This was presumably easier than teaching some higher-level script to parse both formats.  Reasonable enhancement request but not for 2.70, and I think we should have a discussion with the automake team about converging automake test support with autotest.

The switch they added is spelled -A / --am-fmt.
