Precisely. And, worse, doesn't add (last I checked) any of the
capabilities I needed and have already extended unittest to do (and
those extensions were in the spirit of the original, I did not have to
do great violence to unittest to add the extensions. Oh, I wanted to
do great violence to unittest in general to clean it up, but that was
to the implementation, not the interface. :) ).

Maybe. Its all about ROI and learning curves. When ROI is (or is
perceived to be) 0, then that is reason enough. :)
