We're using junitxml at work and I can heartily plus one it. Although I 
wouldn't guarantee that it supports the unittest2 test skipping / 
expected failures - however that isn't necessarily a problem as 
unittest2 can cope with this (they become passes).

The unittest2 plugins branch is very, very far from being production
