[TIP] nose2: the nosening

Hey all,


It begins! Requires the plugins branch of unittest2 from
hg.python.org. Much does not actually work, because it's loading its
plugins in a wrong and evil way.

This brings up a unittest2 feature request, of course. As it stands
it's not that easy for a framework to declare a bunch of plugins that
it wants loaded automatically. Maybe TestProgram.__init__ can take a
configFiles option? Or in some other way allow a framework to inject
its list of plugins into the normal plugin loading process?

Oh and yeah, this is the part where everybody who said "I want to
help!" can start helping. :) Even if that just means filing issues in
the bitbucket tracker or cataloging the weird things that nose does
that nose2 should also do (or not). Whatever you can do, if you care
about there being a nose2, the time has come to pitch in -- it won't
make it to pypi without you.
