Virgil Dupras <hsoft at hardcoded.net> added the comment:
So, we are talking about adding a feature that could cause problem whether
cleanup is performed before tearDown or after tearDown. Don't we risk
confusing developers who are not familiar with the cleanup order?
Do we really want to add this feature? The added functionality doesn't
seem so attractive compared to the risk of confusion. We might as well
continue to let the developers implement this feature in their own
TestCase subclasses (for example, my own subclass already implement a
TestCase.create_tmpdir(name) (which does cleanup, of course), which is
easier to use than the rmtree example that was given as a use case). At
least, when they do, they know about the cleanup order.
