I don't think I like this part. It's not uncommon to expect non zero 
return when tests are failing even in developer sessions. If we are to 
ever convert to using this new run-test for automated systems, which we 
really should, it must return non zero on failures.

I'm guessing you added this to avoid the extra failure printing from the 
build system. Surely this can be worked around differently?
