I think it would be better to use Python's built-in unittest package instead of
using our own custom unit testing framework.


It supports things like:
* finding all test*.py files and loading them automatically
* allowing filtering of which tests are run without needing to comment out
sections of the source code
* being a well-known unit testing framework
* has a test-running GUI for those who don't like command-line as much
* not needing a Makefile
