Well, I was assuming that f(x), g(x) and q(x) were actually much longer.  
Otherwise the original statement wouldn't have been split either.  For 

    self.assertEquals(if_we_do_something("with a long string") +
                      "and concatenate that", then_we_get(2*3),

    assert (if_we_do_something("with a long string") +
                      "and concatenate that" == then_we_get(2*3)), (

In general I think we should not try to rearrange the lines too hard; 'assert'
is a bit shorter than 'self.assertEquals(' but then not dramatically so.  The
translation could be beautified by reindenting it entierely, but this looks
like a dangerous thing to do in the current model and isn't absolutely
