Well this is what I meant:

import unittest

class TestWithRaises(unittest.TestCase):
    def test_first(self):
        assert False

    def test_second(self):
        print("also called")
        assert True

if __name__ == '__main__':

in this case also the second test is run even if the first fails..
But that's probably easy because we just need to catch exceptions for
every method call, so it's not exactly the same thing..
