Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Fix Released

Bug description:
Right now zeitgeist is using pure python unittest plus a self written script to 
run all tests. I think there are cases where we need a more powerful testing 
framework, I suggest using nose [1].
Some examples:
 * we are using temporary databases for our tests, it would be nice if we could 
hook into a testfailure with a sqlite3 terminal to introspect the content and 
run queries manually before deleting the database
 * right now it is a pain to select individual testcases, nose can help us alot 
with this
 * at the moment we are just ignoring the output of logging, but especially in 
cases where a testcase fails this information is useful, nose has a plugin to 
capture this logs and append it to the report
