After discussion on python-dev, it seems that API lock-in precludes any change to the package structure.  So, the main proposals left are the addition of new better aliases for some of the functions and changing to the docs so that the new name is clear:

   assertLE(self, other)
      old name:  AssertLessEqual
      . . .

Also, I we should still dedocument assert<sometype>Equal and its brethren and leave assertEqual as the primary interface.  

At some point, we could add an option to assertEqual to allow user control of how failing results are displayed.  This would let us separate content from presentation (i.e. a==b vs how a diff would get presented).
