Which seem like compelling reasons to keep things the way they are for
unittest, in addition to the fact that we're already in RC for 3.2, so you
would need RM approval to make such a change this late in the process.

I agree that it's not ideal, but for certain packages that are also
distributed separately, it can be much easier to keep the tests with the code,
and I'm inclined to defer to the primary maintainer's preference.
