That has lost some important features from my example:

* You have only one piece of data per scenario, and it appears to be
  un-used in the test case functions.

* There seems to be no allowance for multiple values defining a

* The scenarios have lost their names and so presumably can't be
  distinguished in the test run.

Can you try again, keeping the above features from my example?
Otherwise, it seems DDT isn't as good.
