Two students worked on such idea during the Google Summer of Code 2011. They
have been quite active discussion about it on the #python-testing IRC channel
but it looks like we totally forget to talk about it on this mailing list. We
are using a dedicated mailing list at pyti at librelist.com [1].

I'm lacking the time to make a proper response but we should definitely join
our effort. You can have a look at the existing docs about PyTi:


I CC the pyti list to this message in hope than someone will have a bit more
