[TIP] What are you all using for fixtures?

Hi All,

Right now I'm looking for alternatives to the farmdev fixture module (http://farmdev.com/projects/fixture/) for loading fixture data with sqlalchemy. My main problem with that library is that while it's easy to use (nice, human-editable way of specifying fixtures), the teardown code in particular is rather buggy (among other issues, it will issue deletes twice for each row, the second time with some data as strings where they were ints before).

What are you using, and why do you like or dislike it?
