Called to create a new test session. A test session looks like this:
- $harness->summary( $aggregate );
prints the summary report after all tests are run. The first
argument is an aggregate to summarise. An optional second argument may
be set to a true value to indicate that the summary is being output as a
result of an interrupted test run.
