I think *a* way to do this nicely is to have test.objspace() raise a
"TestSkip" exception when asked for a specific object space that is
not the one currently being tested.  This probably means rewriting
more of unittest.py, though (we want four possible outcomes: pass,
fail, error, skip).


  same software, different verbosity settings (this one goes to
  eleven)                             -- the effbot on the martellibot
