It can be as dynamic as desired.

scenarios = some_generator(), for instance.

Processing of them into tests is currently done before execution, rather
than in-execution, because thats easier to understand and work with
(e.g. for countTestCases, progress bars and the like). But as unittest
gets the last 5-6 years of maintenance done to it :), well things in
addons like this may improve.
