Python Unittest Trial


Hi all,

I had a brief look at using Python for unit testing today and wrote a few

Python 2.7 . If I go further with this I would likely switch to the
nose-test module.

Any feedback welcome. What I really need is some help in a plan to asses
the usefulness and feasibility of this. Can you see yourself using this?
Where could this Python approach falter?

Here is my branch:
