unittest-like structuration is really what works best for most testing situations, IMO. Alternative testing schemes for "easier" or "more intuitive" testing have generally failed as general-purpose tools.
Agreed, but the spelling of test assertions as methods on test cases isn't an essential part of that structure.
That's true, OTOH I disagree that assertions as methods is any kind of hindrance to easy testing. Actually, that paradigm makes it trivial to define your own assertions in a way that makes them look like the built-in ones.
