Hey Allen,

I haven't used (or even heard of) nose before. What features from nose
do you want to use with Trial?

As for getting them to work together, Trial tries very hard to be
compatible with the standard library's unittest module, so if nose
understands that, it ought to understand Trial tests.[1]


[1] There are a couple of known instances where they won't work.
Hopefully they are listed on the bug tracker.
