I just looked over my notes from the testing panel at last year's PyCon.
I thought the most useful question asked was "What is the most effective
use case for each system?" and the question I wish had been asked was
"Can I mix & match test frameworks and tools (and if so how and why)?"
So those might be elements to consider discussing.
