Log Message:
Update to 0.6:

Experimental version released on February 22nd, 2013.

* Issue 36: Changed 'kyua help' to not fail when the configuration file
  is bogus.  Help should always work.

* Issue 37: Simplified the syntax() calls in configuration and Kyuafile
  files to only specify the requested version instead of also the format
  name.  The format name is implied by the file being loaded, so there
  is no use in the caller having to specify it.  The version number of
  these file formats has been bumped to 2.

* Issue 39: Added per-test-case metadata values to the HTML reports.

* Issue 40: Rewrote the documentation as manual pages and removed the
  previous GNU Info document.

* Issue 47: Started using the independent testers in the kyua-testers
  package to run the test cases.  Kyua does not implement the logic to
  invoke test cases any more, which provides for better modularity,
  extensibility and robustness.

* Issue 57: Added support to specify arbitrary metadata properties for
  test programs right from the Kyuafile.  This is to make plain test
  programs more versatile, by allowing them to specify any of the
  requirements (allowed architectures, required files, etc.) supported
  by Kyua.

* Reduced automatic screen line wrapping of messages to the 'help'
  command and the output of tables by 'db-exec'.  Wrapping any other
  messages (specially anything going to stderr) was very annoying
  because it prevented natural copy/pasting of text.

* Increased the granularity of the error codes returned by kyua(1) to
  denote different error conditions.  This avoids the overload of '1' to
  indicate both "expected" errors from specific subcommands and
  unexpected errors caused by the internals of the code.  The manual now
  correctly explain how the exit codes behave on a command basis.

* Optimized the database schema to make report generation almost

* Bumped the database schema to 2.  The database now records the
  metadata of both test programs and test cases generically, without
  knowledge of their interface.

* Added the 'db-migrate' command to provide a mechanism to upgrade a
  database with an old schema to the current schema.

* Removed the GDB build-time configuration variable.  This is now part
  of the kyua-testers package.

* Rewrote the Kyuafile parsing code in C++, which results in a much
  simpler implementation.  As a side-effect, this gets rid of the
  external Lua files required by 'kyua', which in turn make the tool

* Added caching of various configure test results (particularly in those
  tests that need to execute a test program) so that cross-compilers can
  predefine the results of the tests without having to run the
