Please wait on this. As I said earlier this thread, there are too many
moving parts right now. Story Runner is still very new (not yet
released) and our plan is to use the Spec Runner formats for Story
Runner so the output looks uniform whether you're running Stories or
Specs in any supported format (plain text/html/textmate, etc). Until
that (which is higher priority than adding facets) is resolved, I
don't want to complicate what's there now.

Once that is resolved, however, I'll be happy to entertain this idea.

I think that in the end we'd want the latter. Don't forget that this
will require changes to the html formatters as well as plain text.
