I don't think this is supported by unittest, which is what determines
what constitutes a "test". Nothing that couldn't be hacked around, but
I don't see the added value over just using a finally block.

Was there any reason we couldn't use that? I don't think it prevents
code reuse, and it's a standard way of doing things that everyone
should be familiar with.
