I thought Jason's suggestion was that there may be a cleanUp method,
rather than list, which would be called after tearDown and no matter what.
If cleanUp were to be a list, I'd prefer that it be spelled differently,
to make a clearer distinction between it and the setUp and tearDown
methods. Maybe cleanUpList.
