Sorry, I got busy with other things. Here's the diff for decorators,
with an implementation that works with generators and also allows the
test condition to be a callable (very useful for conditions that you
want to evaluate only at suite run time, not at import time). I
hadn't sent it because I wanted to polish it and write some tests for
it, but here it is for now.
I also included a patch for the verbosity problem: the issue is that
we're hardcoding '-s' in the test runner, which suppresses stdout
capture. This should instead be an option for the user (like
test(capture=False)). That diff just disables -s, so it's not
finished, but I don't have time right now to implement the complete
solution. At least I hope pointing in the right direction will be
useful if someone else can finish.
