To use it in your own test modules simply import make_load_tests and add
the following to your test modules:
load_tests = make_load_tests(__name__)
At the moment there are no assert functions (I may expand simpletest to
include these at some point) so you can use assert statements, with the
cost of the useful failure messages unless you construct them yourself.
Once Holger and Benjamin have worked on their ast transformation code it
should be possible to add this to simpletest for better failure messages
with plain asserts.
Not that I'll ever use this myself of course...
