[pytest-dev] Custom reporting for asserts without comparison operators?

Hi Floris and thanks for the feedback.
Unfortunately, this does not solve my usecase. I'm trying to handle cases
where the following statement would pass:
assert myfunc(failing_input) == False
But where this next statement would fail using my custom report:
Calling myfunc() needs to return True or False (or at least Truthy or
Falsy)--this is locked-in behavior.
The assert_myfunc() in my original post is a wrapper that does basically
the same thing as your example. Although I omitted the native assert in my
examples because it is only evaluated when it's already guaranteed to pass.
