For completeness:

Turns out that I was making the tests run differently than I thought
I was such that the 'run' method on each test was not actually being
called directly and result handling was incorrect. Not only was the
above problem there, failed tests weren't reporting! Fixing it was
messy but now the correct behavior is in place:


It's pretty clear that getting pytest integration to be clean is
going to require more effort, but at least it is working (mostly)
