So has ipython recently, for what it's worth.  It does make easy a lot
of things that should be easy but aren't under unittest, which is a
big plus in my view.  We also adopted it after advice from Robert,
others at Enthought and Titus Brown during a BOF session at last
year's SciPy.

The fact that nose absorbs/recognizes all regular unittest tests makes
the transition fairly easy.
