Be aware that Python 2.7 and higher has unit test discovery in the
standard library:

    $ python -m unittest discover

will look through all packages within the current directory and collect
unit tests it finds, then run them and report
<URL:http://docs.python.org/library/unittest.html#test-discovery>.

You can get the same in earlier versions of Python with ‘unittest2’
<URL:http://pypi.python.org/pypi/unittest2>.
