[Python-Dev] Problems with regrtest and with logging

Sorry for quick email-battery dying.
regrtest helpfully reports when a test leaves the environment unclean
(sys.path, os.environ, logging._handlerList), but I think the
implementation is buggy: it compares object identity and then value.
Why is comparing identity useful? I’d just use ==. It makes writing
cleanup code easier (just use addCleanup(setattr, obj, 'attr',
Second: in packaging, we have two modules that create a logging
handler. I’m not sure how if we should change the code or fix the tests
to restore the _handlerList, or how.
Thanks for advice.
