+1 to assert* from me. the fail* variants always feel like double-negatives. I also always use assertTrue instead of assert_. But I don't care enough to argue about it. :)
+1 to the plain affirmative propositions (assert*) instead of the kind-of-double-negative stuff. It helps a lot specially if you're not a native english speaker.
+1 to remove them in Py3k.
- 2to3 should "fix" them?
- should we add a warning in 2.6 and remove them in 2.7? Or 2.7/2.8?
