for _ in range(4000):
assert 1 == 2
AIUI this is the sort of thing you mean? I realise this is spelt
slightly more verbosely than nose does - but it [clearly] is possible to
take an iterable and wrap it programatically. Personally I find tests
generated like this (nose style or as above) somewhat awkward. I'm
curious what sort of testing problems you (and Titus and ...) find
generated tests attractive for.
