[erlang-questions] xUnit implementation for Erlang ?

After that recent discussion, the following change was made
(snip from Kernel release notes):

"When setting the kernel configuration parameter error_logger to false,
  the documentation stated that "No error logger handler is installed".
  This is true, but error logging is not turned off, as the initial,
  primitive error logger event handler is kept, printing raw event
  messages to tty.

  Changing this behavior can be viewed as a backward incompatible change.
  Instead a new value 'silent' for the configuration parameter has been
  added, which ensures that error logging is completely turned off."
