it would be very helpfull if py.test could decoy the remote trace more nice

    could you provide an example, suggest what should be shown? (i am sometimes missing this concreteness from your posts/reports)

    well, when execnet remotes fail, all one gets is a RemoteError

    and that contains a string

    now if that string matches what an actual traceback looks like it would be very helpfull to get a faked trackeback instead of RemoteError+string

    we discussed this also on IRC - i don't think trying to magically have remote tracebacks work should be a feature of the basic execnet mechanism. (execnet is going to use the dedicated tracker, btw)
