The skipIf/skipUnless decorators can have a method call as the first parameter, so you can presumably have (e.g.) "has_extensions()", "has_net_access()" helpers easily enough (alternatively you can use unittest.skip() in the test itself). This way, you get an explanation of why the test was skipped when you run in verbose mode.


I have not yet played with the 2.7+ stuff (I can start this weekend
after the release!) but this sounds like exactly what we want. I
didn't know about the verbose mode. A verbose mode would answer a
lot of problems: it can explain that it is running with preinstalled
source etc.
