Also, as a general  suggestion it would be nice to have pytest send an lf so that it the pytest output doesn't run into our logging output, as you can see below.

Did you try the "-r" option? for example to report skip messages: -rs

Hum, not sure i understand what's happening here.  This seems to be 
a py.test run in verbose mode?  Why is it mixed with logging output?
Usually py.test would capture such output.  IOW, could you give a bit more 
context on how/what you are invoking here?
