The testing pattern in Jython really could use a good long look -- I'd epecially like to integrate the bugtests area with the rest and come up with a different pattern (I hate the numbered tests thing.) -- but that's a big job.

I fully agree with you. Do you already have a favourite pattern ?

Not really... I just want to attach meaningful names and groupings to the bugtests (instead of just numbers) and integrate them with the tests in [jython.hom]/Lib/tests.  I'd also like to seperate the jython only tests somewhere, perhaps [jython.hom]/Lib/tests/platform/jvm?
