Keeping your Nose Green
Mark of pywinauto fame told me about nose, a unit testing tool with autodiscovery. I was slinging some python over the weekend, and needed coverage as my codebase got bigger.. so I whipped this up.

stats = os.stat (f)
val += stats [stat.ST_SIZE] + stats [stat.ST_MTIME]
if checkSum() != val:

Update: A video of this is here.
