In the unittest documentation a distinction is made between the word
"error" and "failure". However, the description for the
TestCase.assertTrue() function reads:

"Signal a test failure if expr is false; the explanation for the error..."

The word "error" should instead read "failure" in order to maintain
consistency with the words' uses throughout the rest of the documentation.
