Well, the suite method isn't a magic name, its just convention as far as
it goes.

Python 2.7 has a load_tests hook which the TestLoader discovery can use,
if you need to do special things.

I'm curious why you are moving to nose, if you have a working
environment already. (And I mean no disrepect to nose by asking this -
I'm just curious).

Separately. are you aware of http://pypi.python.org/pypi/junitxml, which
can also provide xml output but without being as either-or as xmlrunner?
