    The easiest thing that could probably be done is take the work I
did with prove.test.mk, py-nose.test.mk, and py-unittest.test.mk (on
github) and make it work with the direction that jmmv is proposing for
atf/kyua with kyua being the unified top-level driver/reporting engine
for testing on FreeBSD. py*.mk needs polishing, but prove.test.mk is
"ready for production" (I've been using it for some time for the stuff
in tools/regression that I didn't fully port over to ATF).
