[New-bugs-announce] [issue24055] unittest package-level set up & tear down module

New submission from Demian Brecht:
There's a feature available via nose that might be nice to have in unittest: package-level setup and teardown functions.
Using nose, I can define a setUpModule() method in a test package's __init__.py and it will execute it during the test run. This is helpful for test packages that test related features and may have expensive setup/teardown routines. By having the test runner pick up setup/teardown methods in __init__.py, I can now incur this expense once rather than once per module.
I don't mind putting a patch together for this if others think this might be beneficial.
