Indeed. I did the split but I feel that the scenario types/test function
association is very clumsy:

Is there a simpler way to do this? Ideally, I'd rather have  a simple way to
associate a test function with a test parameter generator. I'm thinking of
something like this for example:

@parametrized( _generate_property_validation_tests, ['good_values'] )
def test_property_validation_good_values( scenario_type, dbo_class, value,
good_value ):

The parametrized decorator would call _generate_property_validation_tests(
metafunc, ['good_values'] ).

Is there a way to do that?
