That's the idea. t/SMOKE runs thousands of tests, and you want to see any 
output at all only if something goes wrong. We can print "." for each test if 
you think it's really important. I have 'tail -F t/logs/error_log' open at all 
times and I have the gkrellm running so I have a way too much visual 
indication that things are working ;)

However I agree that t/SMOKE's output and report need more polishing, it's a 
moving target, but let's do one step at a time. First get it working on winFU 
and then polish the output...

t/SMOKE redefines the meaning of -verbose as you know it from t/TEST, perphaps 
we need to use a different flag. it only prints the 'test .... ok' lines. 
Please give it a try.

Only when it hits the error it'll print the *verbose* output of the test and 
only the relevant chunk of the error_log file. Try to make one of the tests 
fail and you will see how cool it is ;)
