Yes, I agree - getting to a unified approach has been my intention since I first brought this
up at LPC'17.

If I get Brendan right, it is UML only now but can be extended to also support
kernels running on real hardware. Still it is kernel only, while KTF also has the
hybrid mode, where a test can have code and assertions both in user mode and kernel mode.
This is made easier and more streamlined by letting all reporting happen from user mode.
