[New-bugs-announce] [issue16000] test_curses should use unittest

New submission from Chris Jerdonek:

This issue is to switch test_curses to using unittest.TestCase classes.

Currently, test_curses does not use unittest.TestCase.  It just calls a series of functions that exercise curses functionality and aborts if an exception occurs:


Some consequences of this are that a single failure will cause remaining tests not to execute, there is no fine-grained reporting, and TestCase assertion methods are not available (e.g. assertRaisesRegexp()).
