If I had to use python to test C++ code, I'd use the Boost python
library: http://www.boost.org/libs/python/doc/ to expose my C++
classes, and write the unittests in python after importing the wrapped
C++ code.
Note, you did ask if it was possible.  Is it advisable?  That's another
question.

All the best,

 Keir.
