[pytest-dev] More flexibility on test function naming conventions

Hi All,

Is there a way to specify multiple naming conventions for test functions?

For example, in my pytest.ini, I would like:

python_functions=[given, when, then, and, but]

Then pytest can discover functions such as:

def given_iam_an_author(): pass
def and_i_wrote_an_article(): pass
def when_i_do_this(): pass
def then_result_is_good(): pass

If this functionality doesn't exist yet, any hint on which pytest code I
can play with to experiment on this?

Many thanks,
Ernesto D. Luzon Jr.
