Test framework needs option to run tests and return statuses

Currently the test framework just uses a unittest.TextTestRunner to run tests and output results to stderr. It would be nice to support an alternate TestRunner that would return results instead.

This would be particularly useful for running automated tests and storing test results. Currently for our automated testing, I'm having to regex the stderr for results. Not ideal.

I'm going to go ahead and write a patch for this

Triage Stage: UnreviewedDesign decision needed

I wrote the patch to add this functionality by passing an optional unittest.TestResult to run_tests. Of course you could just write your own run_tests test runner, but it seems this is something we should be supporting.

A good idea, but if we're going to hit v1.0 we're going to need to defer for a while.
