This patch adds a verbosity keyword argument to unittest.main - so you
can do:

    if __name__ == '__main__':

It also has a minor fix allowing you to specify test modules / classes
from the command line. This enables unittest to be used like this:

    python -m unittest test_module
    python -m unittest test_module.TestClass

Which is quite funky.

It would be nice to have a test for the command line functionality but
I'm not sure it's easy.
In Misc/NEWS, please add the issue number as in other entries.
Other than that, looks fine.

I didn't add the issue number because I created the patch prior to
creating the issue. Will add when I commit. Would like permission to
commit this from an interested core developer.
