[TIP] RFC: Add TestResult.done()

JML's testtools has a TestResult subclass with a done() method. The
reason for this method is to allow doing things after the last test has
run. While a result can infer 'first test' it can't infer 'last test'
without ugliness like __del__.
Some uses for this are:
- reporting summary data
- closing external resources like log files, sockets to remote machines
- <your idea here>
This can be added quite safely I think - check for the attribute, and if
present call it.
done() could be spelt differently - I don't think anyone would care.
I was prompted to send this mail, as I just needed to run some code in a
TestResult after all the tests in a different project, and remembered
its not part of the stdlib yet :)
