Any formatter - builtin or custom.

The proxies don't have refs back to the examples by design. Need to
find a means of accessing the examples directly, not their proxies.

Unfortunately, there is not really a good extension point for this
right now. I'll add one for the next release, but in the mean time
you'll need to replace line 30 in deep_test/spec/runner.rb with
something like this:

        examples = example_groups.map do |g|
          proxies = g.send(:examples_to_run)
          proxies.map {|p| g.new(p, &g.example_implementations[p])}

That's untested, but should give you the basic idea. If this can wait
a bit, let's coordinate off list and work out a good extension point -
I'll do a release in the next week or so that exposes it and you can
follow up w/ your release. Good?
