[TIP] parametrize a pytest finalizer

It doesn't seem possible to pass arguments to a pytest finalizer. I can work around it this way, but it seems exceedingly ugly:

@pytest.fixture(scope = "class")
def test_fixture(request):

    global cleanup_parameter
    cleanup_parameter = "Cleaning up"

    def cleanup():
        global cleanup_parameter
        print cleanup_parameter

    except Exception:
        cleanup_parameter = "Problem in fixture!"


Is there a better way?
