[TIP] cleanUp for unittest

The zope.testing package provides a setupstack module that provides
support for this (though with the clunky constraint that the cleanup
function that calls the stacked cleanups has to be arranged for).

Having a way to support this functional behavior as part of the
standard TestCase class would be a substantial improvement over the
current situation.  There should be a method to add a cleanup function
and another to call them at the end as part of the base

If someone wants to handle the implementation of those differently,
they can use subclass TestCase and use that instead where it matters.
