You could use a decorator, or subclass unittest.TestCase. But it would
probably be cleaner just to call the workup at the end of the test.
(another option would be to use something like py.test, which gives you
this capability in the form of fixtures.

If you do want to do the decorator approach, it would be something like:

import os
import unittest

def check_for_file(fxn):
    def wrapped(self):
    return wrapped

class MyCase(unittest.TestCase):
    def testOne(self):
