What means "flooded" here? You only get additional console output in case a unit test fails.
Have you ever tried this setting before simply vetoing it? I use it on my daily job and it
is a great help if something fails. Otherwise Maven simply reports that a test has failed
and you have to find out yourself which one. Take a project with a lot of unit tests and you
know what I mean. Try to find the failing test between 500 successful ones. And it is then
a major pain to find out why. With this setting you see immediately which one failed and why.
