New submission from Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr>:

Raising SkipTest when in a tearDown method is reported as an error, rather than a skipped test.
Now doing this sounds like a weird use case, but it would be actually useful when you have a worker thread, and the tearDown method collects the exception raised in that thread and raises it again. For the worker thread to be able to use skipTest(), a SkipTest exception raised in tearDown should be properly reported as a skip.
