Subclassing /is/ the mechanism :)
Furthermore, some rare tests are Py-specific and some rare others are
C-specific: you want specific test classes for them anyway.

The only alternative is to manually duplicate tests, these leads to very
poor test coverage because of the average developer's laziness (json is
an example).
