I tried very hard and never managed to find a way to make it work in
that mode, unfortunately. Not saying it's categorically impossible,
but given the current architecture of unittest and nose, it wasn't
easy to do with code that wasn't super intrusive.

You'd need to modify a lot of how unittest and nose execute tests and
record failures to be able to change that, I'm afraid.  Since I wanted
a *lightweight* extension that would work cleanly on top of
nose/unittest and would be easy to maintain moving forward, I settled
for this.

Ideally this would be done right at the unittest level, but I don't
have the bandwidth to pursue that, I'm afraid.
