I'm using PyUnit in biopython-corba right now,
and am happy with it. I had to hack it a little to support CORBA
better (it wasn't possible to pass in objects and I couldn't 
recreate every CORBA object in the setUp function), but that is
probably just an idiosyncracy with CORBA.

It really helps me organize tests, and makes me feel like I am testing 
things better; so I like it. Seeing it integrated with regression code 
would be especially nice. So +1 on this from me.

BTW, since we are talking about tests -- does anyone have any idea
what happened to the Tests directory recently? I'm suddenly getting 7
tests failing, and most of the problems look like line ending
problems. Just curious...
