Thus, it seems the best option if we want to make sure Test::Harness is
custmisable in this and other ways is to spin it off and create a better
and more customizable test harnessing module, with an incompatible

option for this and future features, but that would be Evil.

Mr. Lester, would you approve of a friendly spin-off of Test::Harness?
Another option would be to use Test::Harness::Straps. This seems a lot
more easy than trying to write your own harness. Since its already
included with recent Perls, that seems to make more sense than writing your
own incompatible testing harness.
From a brief inspection of Test::Harness::Straps it seems that it doesn't give
all the necessary functionality. Some logic is still present only in
Test::Harness which makes uses of T::H::S.
