Hi Heng,

Multiprocessing is not there in nose2 yet but there definitely will be
some kind of test distribution/parallelization plugin. Right now I'm
still thinking about different ways to approach the problem and not
ready to start coding yet. If anything it should be easier with
nose2's plugin system and non-lazy test collection, but "easier" isn't
"easy" ...

The things that won't work in nose2 are basically the ones in nose
that depend on test collection being lazy: weird project layouts where
modules shadow each other, and plugins like the isolation plugin that
assume a test module is imported and run before other test modules are
