That seems like too big a topic and too vague a description to discuss
usefully. Perhaps you have a specific proposal? Or at least just a use
case that's poorly covered?

TBH, your choice of words is ambiguous -- are you interested in
overhauling the facilities for testing *of* the standard library (i.e.
the 'test' package), or the testing facilities *provided by* the
standard library (i.e. the unittest module)?
