I've been looking at pytest and nose as alternatives to unittest, since
they both offer a pythonic interface for writing unit tests without too
much boilerplate. I was hoping for some opinions from this list about when
to choose nose and when to choose pytest? What are the main advantages of
each? My target python version is 3.3, does that make a difference?
