Not where the reports for individual testsuites are concerned; this 
information is stored in individual files "<testsuite>.diffs" in the 
"TEST/<configuration>/<thorn>/" subdir and is simply imported as is into 
the integration test output.
The only information which is parsed by the integration test script is 
the one stored in "TEST/<configuration>/summary.log" from which the 
number of available testsuites and the number of passed/failed tests is 
So feel free to unify and beautify the testsuite script output as you like.

BTW: If you want to take a look at the Cactus integration test scripts 
that I'm running every night:

   cvs -d :pserver:cvs_anon at cvs.aei.mpg.de:/eScienceCVS co 
AstroGrid/Cactus/IntegrationTests   # login with password 'anon'

Cheers, Thomas.
