Easy to add test cases with setUp and tearDown functions if you wish
Allows the use of mocks and stubs

of color schemes for the default test reporter etc.
See bin/nodeunit.json for current available options.

You can set the test reporter to a custom module or on of the modules
in nodeunit/lib/reporters, when omitted, the default test runner is used.
List available build-in reporters.
