It's still a bit dangerous. Imagine that gtest will just crash. In such
case XML file will be broken. That's why I suggest to ignore XML output
itself and parse stdout.

Another issue is how to deal with timed out tests. If you've just one
gtest executable, it's enough to just set build step timeout.

We're actually finding all executables named '*_gTest' and executing them
using script on buildslave. This script also implements own timeout
