For the sake of completeness, here's the code to do this:

# Make a bunch of nose.tools assert wrappers that can be used in test
# generators
nose_asserts = [a for a in dir(nt) if a.startswith('assert')]

tpl = """
def %(name)s(*a,**kw):
    return nt.%(name)s(*a,**kw)

for a in nose_asserts:
    exec tpl % dict(name=a)

# I'll just use that now in my own codes, since it frees me from
having to think :)
