I have checked in myself some plain stdlib unittest + oejskit 
integration, an usage example that just repeats
some of the py.test scenarios is here:


the integration code is all in:


I don't use plain unittest much at all, so I don't know if this is 
idiomatic enough. Feedback and improvements are welcome. It basically 
defines a JavaScript specific suite that can be subclassed to add 
configuration info that would go in conftest in py.test, also as for 
py.test tests are run against all specified browser kinds, either given 
as a parameter to the suite or inferred from the js file name.
