I think that formatted plain-text output would be much better than XML,
something that is human-readable and relatively easy to parse via
machine. Something similar to the GHC error output would work well
because developers are familiar with it.
Expecting `4'; received `5'.
This would keep the complexity low in Cabal and allow for easy
transformation to XML.
