+"""Support for parametric tests in unittest.
+
+:Author: Fernando Perez
+
+Purpose
+=======
+
+Briefly, the main class in this module allows you to easily and cleanly
+(without the gross name-mangling hacks that are normally needed) to write
+unittest TestCase classes that have parametrized tests.  That is, tests which
+consist of multiple sub-tests that scan for example a parameter range, but
+where you want each sub-test to:
+
+* count as a separate test in the statistics.
+
+* be run even if others in the group error out or fail.
+
+
+The class offers a simple name-based convention to create such tests (see
+simple example at the end), in one of two ways:
+
+* Each sub-test in a group can be run fully independently, with the
+  setUp/tearDown methods being called each time.
+
+* The whole group can be run with setUp/tearDown being called only once for the
+  group.  This lets you conveniently reuse state that may be very expensive to
+  compute for multiple tests.  Be careful not to corrupt it!!!
+
+
+Caveats
+=======
+
+This code relies on implementation details of the unittest module (some key
+methods are heavily modified versions of those, after copying them in).  So it
+may well break either if you make sophisticated use of the unittest APIs, or if
+unittest itself changes in the future.  I have only tested this with Python
+2.5.
