      That makes sense, is there any way I can add a fail message to the
      logger myself so that I can catch any errors in setup or teardown and
      add them. The reason I prefer it in the test log is because my program
      has a lot of debug output which gets placed into the browser console
      so that any error messages from problems in a setup method get lost in
      the noise of that at the moment.
