I understand your point, I'm a little concerned about running out of
display room, for both the test name and all of the timing values.

I also think there is a small bug since 0.9 about the time displayed for
non-benchmark tests.
Running: 'bzr selftest -v nonascii' now gives:

...cii.NonAsciiTest.test_add_in_nonascii_branch   OK         150ms

bzr-0.9 gives the same output, while bzr-0.8 gives:
test_nonascii.NonAsciiTest.test_add_in_nonascii_branch    OK   672ms

So there are 2 changes.
1) It doesn't use as much of the terminal width. It now uses 2 fewer
characters than it used to.

2) It allocates more space for the time than it really needs.

Now, this might have existed from whenever benchmarks were first
introduced, and I'm just seeing it now. But especially if I was
considering adding a third column, I wouldn't want the standard tests to
have even less room to display the test names.
