I am on Christian's side here: zope.testing is a great tool, used by many
people,
and with strong features,

it looks like it does not need a lot of work to be usable without a buildout
environment,
and to have modern features nose and py.test provides.

At least :

1. the console script (I'll add that in the trunk asap in any case)
2. being able to write tests without subclassing TestCase, in functions and
classes (regexp based+ wrapping)
3. being able to create suites without any extra boiler-plate code, like
nose does (afaik)

Christian, are you willing to work on 2. and 3. ?
