Mostly list comprehension (should be easy to find using a regular
expression search).  No decorators (those you don't use by accident).
I hope that ParametricTest is still compatible with 2.3, but I don't
have 2.3 around to test anymore.

Robert says we should still support 2.3 -- but is there a time limit
or a migration plan?
