New submission from R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com>:
I think that it would be good for expectedFailure to take a message argument like skip does. My thought is that it would be printed both when it is triggered (the test fails as expected) so that one case from the verbose output why the test is expected to fail, and when the test passes unexpectedly. My specific use case is OS bugs, where we could mark a test as an expected failure instead of a skip, and then we would see the unexpected pass when the OS fixes the bug, but in the meantime the verbose output would show the 'skip' reason.
Hmm. I suppose this means I want expectedFailureIf, too...
