Wouldn't it be better if this raised TestFailed rather than
AssertionError?  Or is there code that catches the AssertionError?


Yes, there's code that catches AssertionError:

(1) in Marc-Andre's own test_unicode.py;

(2) in test_re, which catches AssertionError and raises TestFailed


(1) change verify() to raise TestFailed;

(2) change test_unicode.py to catch TestFailed instead.
