Pythoscope, the unit test generator

Stop using the fixture module for testing

Registered by Michal Kwiatkowski on 2009-03-29

Fixture seems to cause a few problems for Pythoscope, and since we don't use it much, we can replace it.

Problems with fixture:
 - in some cases fails on Windows (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/pythoscope/+bug/348136)
 - causes problems when tests invoked with "python setup.py test" (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/pythoscope/+bug/311778)
 - directories auto-destruct behavior doesn't always work as expected
 - requires Python 2.4 or higher

We only use fixture.io.TempIO class for managment of temporary directories in tests.
