Sorry, I wasn't clear. The current output for each test in the debug file
usually includes a line "test_result: X" with X replaced by a number.
However, for tests that fail outright, this line is missing. This missing
line happened to correspond to the tests that had a newline in the result
message that I discussed (snipped) above.

Please don't put in the parentheses things. That was just me commenting
on which number meant what.

Point taken.

Where can I find some documentation for or examples of a plugin?
