Historically, the kgb unit tests made use of nose as the test runner.
Unfortunately, nose 1.x is no longer maintained and is incompatible
with modern versions of Python 3. The forks are no better, and nose2
is a very different library.

This change moves the codebase over to pytest. This is a much more
modern test runner with a lot of interesting capabilities and a wide
ecosystem of plugins.

Developers can now run pytest directly to run the test suite. The old
./tests/runtests.py still works, but is deprecated, and merely wraps
pytest anyway.

Unit tests pass on all supported versions of Python.

Summary
Switch the unit test runner to pytest.
