[Pulp-list] Test mock framework



Have any of the available python test mock frameworks been considered for
pulp?

As we split the unit tests out so that they can be run quickly with few
dependencies, a common mocking framework will be helpful.  

There's several options out there, pymox seems to be a popular choice and is
being actively worked on (http://code.google.com/p/pymox/), and there are some
helpful comparisons that have been done:

http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/mock/compare.html

One thing to consider would be that it looks like none of these packages are
in RHEL, so when we run our tests on RHEL 5 and 6, we'd need to install these
packages from somewhere like EPEL or Fedora.  I'm not sure how feasible or
what all that would entail.
