This is so awesome. What a great idea.

Google code only lets project members (who also get svn write access)
edit the wiki, unfortunately. But here's my recipe for use with

1. Make sure you're running emacs server -- put (server-start) in your
.emacs, or if you just want to try, put it in some elisp file, select
it, and M-x eval-region.
2. Set your EDITOR to emacsclient (or if like me you're trying out the
emacs snapshot on ubuntu, but haven't chosen it as your active version
yet, set it to emacsclient.emacs-snapshot)
3. nosetests --tty --tty-edit-cmd="%(editor)s +%(lineno)s %(filename)s"

This will pop the file up in a new buffer (if you didn't already have
it open, or bring up the old buffer if you did)... make your edits,
then C-x # to send it back to emacsclient, which will exit, and you
can continue on your merry way in the tty.
