Note that str(test) and don't return the same value.  The former is the "friendly" name.  It is probably intentional that TextTestResult uses the TestCase instance's friendly name in its getDescription() method as opposed to the id.

What about testscenarios subclassing the TestCase instances as it parametrizes them?

    class ScenariosTestCase(case.__class__):
        def __str__(self):
            return "testscenarios test name..."
    case.__class__ = ScenariosTestCase

From the documentation, it looks like testscenarios creates new test objects from the originals anyways.  Alternatively (although I don't if testscenarios can control what test runner is being used), TextTestRunner could be subclassed with its own getDescription() method.
