I don't know and haven't tested myself pytest with Jython for a long
time.  There are some Jython 2.7 RC candidates out and i guess it would make
sense to try to run against and only support them.  I am sure that Jim 
and Frank (two core Jython core devs) would help if there is anything
that needs fixing.  However, someone needs to run and test things and
report issues here or/on the Jython trackers.
