Sometimes we want to check the exact type of an object.
The method assertIsInstance could be misleading in such case.

The current workaround is:
assertIs(type(obj), some_class)

However we can add an argument to the method to keep the benefit of  having a nice failure message.

Examples:
  assertIsInstance(stdobj, dict, exact_type=True)
  assertIsInstance(myobj, dict, exact_type=MyDict)
