  Description     : test configuration plugin for nosetests

 nose-testconfig is a plugin to the nose test framework which provides a
 faculty for passing test-specific (or test-run specific) configuration data to
 the tests being executed.
 Currently configuration files in the following formats are supported:
   * YAML (via python-yaml)
   * INI (via ConfigParser)
   * Pure Python (via Exec)
   * JSON
 The plugin is meant to be flexible, ergo the support of exec'ing arbitrary
 Python files as configuration files with no checks. The default format is
 assumed to be ConfigParser ini-style format.
 The plugin provides a method of overriding certain parameters from the command
 line (assuming that the main "config" object is a dict) and can easily have
 additional parsers added to it.
 A configuration file may not be provided. In this case, the config object is an
 emtpy dict. Any command line "overriding" paramters will be added to the dict.
