Is it valid to use --boxed with --capture=no? It fails with
UnicodeEncodeError. More details at
https://bitbucket.org/hpk42/pytest/issue/573 but I'm asking here since I
haven't received an anwer on the bitbucket issue in a month. :-)

The reason I want to do that is that I'm looking into using pytest as
the test-runner for my (open source) system for testing set-top boxes &
TVs, and I need to capture (and timestamp) the std{err,out} logs myself.
Some more background on that at
