No it's not. There has to be some (hopefully small) understanding
between the formatter and whatever mechanism we have for running
parallel tests - because when you run parallel tests the results
might arrive in a fairly jumbled up order.
Currently any formatter object must be split into a per-run object
and a per-test object - and there may be multiple instances of the
per-test bit if you're running parallel tests.
Obviously this needs interface needs to crystalise soon - but I don't
think it has yet.
