Generate a Skip test (as in nose) instead of a fail test

Registered by Paul Hildebrandt on 2008-11-08

When running Pythoscope on a legacy code base there will mostly likely be a lot of unit test stubs generated. Having all these failures show up can distract from actual failures. If Pythoscope could be default generate a skip test, like in nose, it would alleviate this problem.

Whiteboard

I needed this for a project, so I implemented a quick and dirty hack at https://code.launchpad.net/~cnelsonsic/pythoscope/unittest-skip-instead-of-fail
