Shouldn't this be handled by our python test runner instead?

If that would just create an extra logfile next to the normal logfile with
only the failing test as output, we would only have to reconfigure the
master config to upload two instead of one file. Additional benefits are
that it would help in local testing and that it would also work on
non-posix platforms.

(Should we add the XFail output to the failure log?)
