Thanks. I modified the patch, because it needs to be backwards 
compatible as well. I also found that the stack pruning code (which 
removes internal eunit functions from the printed stack) had to be 
updated to know about the new format. You can look at it here:

Unless you find any mistakes, I'll merge it to the EUnit master branch 
and will bring it from there into OTP.
