  Description     : extends Nose with certain TestNG like features

 Proboscis is a Python test framework that extends Python's built-in unittest
 module and Nose with features from TestNG.
 TestNG is a testing framework inspired from JUnit and NUnit but introducing
 some new functionalities that make it more powerful and easier to use.
  * Uses decorators instead of naming conventions.
  * Allows for TestNG style test methods, in which a class is initialized once,
    as an alternative to using class fields (see the example below).
  * Allows for explicit test dependencies and skipping of dependent tests on
  * Runs xUnit style clases if desired or needed for backwards compatability.
  * Uses Nose if available (but doesn't require it), and works with many of
    its plugins.
  * Runs in IronPython and Jython (although if you're targetting the JVM you
    should consider using TestNG instead).
