[Mono-dev] NUnit migration and test failure status

Another limitation brought by this migration is that to see meaningful
TestResult-*.log you will have to install xsltproc (in general in
libxslt) as nunit-console itself does not output test failure summaries
to console output anymore and we sort of needed xslt output.

It is not required unless you run tests. And if you run tests it will
be anyways needed to see meaningful logs.
