this is way, way too much output for me. i should be able to scan the
output and very quickly see everything that happened. i don't need
verbose descriptions of tests, and i don't need to know anything about
passing tests at all other than that they passed.

i want test runs to look like this:

1: switching timezone... ok
2: checking block visibility... skipped (not enabled on this platform)
3: editing timezone visibility... failed (you can't do that, silly!)
4: something else... ok
....
Total tests run: 25 Passed: 23 Failed: 1 Skipped: 1
