I have included a zip of the wrapper script and the man page for it.  I believe it will be very efficient to create python unittest test cases and debug them in an full IDE environment like eclipse and PyDev on any linux or unix desktop system against shared libraries that are common between operating systems.  Then just add them to the FreeBSD source tree as ATF wrapped tests once they are fully operational tests.

I was putting it under contrib/atf/atfpy-sh and adding a Makefile under usr.bin/atf/atfpy-sh to copy atfpy-sh to /usr/bin.  Then just stick the test file in a folder under /user/tests, modify the Kyuafile for the folder and it should work.

Hi Myron,
    I think the attachment was stripped from the email. You might want
to contact Alan Somers about his unittest backend for Kyua [1] and
when it might be included in the devel/kyua-testers port; Julio
manages the upstream source [2].
