[Python-Dev] "if __name__ == '__main__'" at the bottom of python unittest files

Hi All,

I have a crazy idea of getting unittest.mock up to 100% code coverage.

I noticed at the bottom of all of the test files in testmock/, there's a:

if __name__ == '__main__':


How would people feel about these going away? I don't *think* they're 
needed now that we have unittest discover, but thought I'd ask.
