New issue 571: pytest_collect_directory is not particularly useful
https://bitbucket.org/hpk42/pytest/issue/571/pytest_collect_directory-is-not

eevee:

It can't programmatically stop recursing into a directory — its return value is ignored.  (Granted, `pytest_ignore_collect` can do this.)

It can't mark the directory as skip — calling `pytest.skip` will end collection entirely.

It can't collect the directory itself as an `Item` — again, its return value is ignored.

I feel some potential has been lost here.  :)

(I have a bunch of test files for a compiler project, where each file is effectively a single test, and I wanted to group them in the default reporting by the directory that contains them, rather than have each of some hundred test files lists on its own line.)
