[pytest-dev] Introspecting fixtures from within a test

Hi there,

I have a small question about fixtures. Basically inside a test function 
I would like to know  which fixtures are active/avaialable and I want to 
be able to reference them and get their return values.

def  inner():
     return  1

def  foo(inner):
     return  2

def  bar():
     return  3

def  test_foo(foo):
     # Let's assume the 'bar' mark magically requests the bar fixture.
     # Now all of 'inner', 'foo' and 'bar' should be available in here.
     # Is there a way to actually reference them here and get their
     # return values, e.g. like: request.getfuncargvalue(...) but
     # only for fixtures that have alreay been requested?

I hope that makes sense to you. I am new to pytest development, so if 
there is a section in the docs that covers this that I have missed, any 
pointers would be greatly appreciated.
