Mustella already has output redirection for gathering test results.  You can
configure it to use some other class to output somewhere else, even multiple
targets IIRC.  It won't catch trace statements left in framework code

The checkintests use flashlog.txt just because it is easier/lazier.  It uses
mustella test steps, but not the harness that launches whole series of tests
and gathers and reports results. uses that harness.
