The documentation is the docstrings :-)

The examples are in the 'test/' directory of the source distribution.
Simply install the plugin as per any other 'nose' plugin, and then:

    $ nosetests --with-scenario test/test_unittest.py
    $ nosetests --with-scenario test/test_testclass.py

They'll partially work as expected, but break in the ways described in
my original post.

Thanks, fixed and uploaded as version 0.1.2

I look forward to ideas on how to address the issues in my original
