Testing with python mock. Is it viable?

I have been developing modules for a while and testing them using the standard unittest library and the openerp orm to create data to test. I have avoided the use of yml as normally i'm testing models methods and it's output with another models, but i find it to be a bad process to create the data and test it using the orm, for not mentioning that sometimes test take a loong time to complete.

My question is... have anyone considered using the mock library for mocking the openerp models and if so, how did you do it?

I have been reading a little about the mock library and i think i understand it, but so far can't see how can be used to mock objects inside openerp.

Thanks in advance.
