New submission from Virgil Dupras:

I've been using unittest for quite a while. One thing I got tired with is 
the code duplication for file management and mocking. A few months ago I 
created this nifty little TestCase subclass and I've been using it ever 
since. It works quite well.

Am I the only one to extensively use temporary files and mocking in my 
tests? If not, I would suggest integrating my little subclass to 
unittest.Testcase, or if people think these functionalities out-scope 
unittest.TestCase, maybe we could put it in a separate unit.

Here's the unit I have here.
