This is the case, of course.  I'm just not clear on what the
workaround is for the statsmodels tests (ie., not running nosetests on
the command line).  Do I need to change the tests to inherit from
np.testing.TestCase?  If so, then I think I need to move all of the
__init__ setup of the tests to a setup method.  I don't see any
special configuration options in any of the other scikits.
