I'm just adding some tests to my fork so I can fix an issue where -whatif causes all sorts of problems but in doing so I think I've found an issue with the way the build tester works.

If a nested build fails I assume that the parent build should also fail? I have two files in my repo that show this isn't the case:

So I'm happy to fix this before I send a pull request but not sure if its a problem with the build tester

$psake.run_by_psake_build_tester = $true

or the part of psake.psm1 which ignores the nested scope due to the build tester

if (!$psake.run_by_psake_build_tester)

I don't think this should be global to all psake invocations but instead something that is pushed onto the context stack. That way only the top level invocation changes its error handling in response to being run under test.
