I'm still having a hard time understanding how one would transform a
test case into multiple copies.  Typically I would do this through
class inheritance but what I don't like about that is the test code
starts to get obfuscated in the chain of parent classes.  I read
through the doc strings but I think I need an example like "here is a
test case that has been transformed into multiple copies" (with actual
code).  I read through your tests too but it was importing a module
called sample_scenarios and that wasn't present in the distribution.
