I don't like the burden of backward compatibility concerns for this kind of test helpers.
The "Lib/test/" directory should be exclusively for internal Python tests.
It should be clearly stated in the documentation.
If some helpers are enough generic, they could be moved to unittest.support (or unittest.util).
