Description (last modified by David Sanders)

I'd like to suggest adding an argument to the test command, --locals, that simply passes tb_locals=True to unittest.TextTestRunner().

Currently it looks as though support for adding custom test runner kwargs was improved in 1.11 with ticket #26981 whereby one can provide a custom test runner and override get_test_runner_kwargs() however I think it would be nice to be able to examine locals without having to setup a custom test runner.

Please note that the tb_locals argument was introduced in Python 3.5, so this would need to be taken into consideration.
