     Type:  defect                   |      Status:  new  
 Priority:  normal                   |   Milestone:  2.0.0
Component:  Documentation            |     Version:  1.5.0
 Keywords:  testing  knownfailureif  |

 [http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/wiki/TestingGuidelines#known-failures-
 skipping-tests] describes decorators numpy.testing.dec.skipif and
 knownfailureif. It implies that these two decorators are equally
 available. However skipif can be used in tests run from the command line
 with nosetests, and knownfailureif cannot. Ralf Gommers explained:
 "Knownfailure is a numpy-specific plugin, which needs to be loaded for
 tests decorated with @dec.knownfailureif to be marked as K instead of E.
 This plugin loading is done by the {{{NoseTester}}} class (defined in
 numpy/testing/nosetester.py) which is used when tests are run through
 numpy.test()."
