Quick thanks to Philippe for bringing this up and to everyone else for
taking the time to carefully work on this error message. It seems like
a small thing, but having a good error message in places like this is
the difference between taking a moment or two to change a test vs.
hitting a wall with py.test and maybe giving up entirely.

Take care,
