Fernando Perez wrote some code to allow you to decorate test
generators (he mentioned it in an earlier thread, but I don't think we
followed up on it).  He also raised the question about this at a
Baypiggies meeting and Alex Martelli blogged about his thoughts here:

I'll talk to Fernando tomorrow and make sure we follow-up on this.
