That's too late for 3.3, IMO. Whether or not test.support is too large
is a matter of taste (we have larger files in the stdlib; what makes
test.support annoying to work with is that it's a hodge-podge of utility
functions with little care for consistency). Unless we can clearly
separate it in thematic areas, making it a package would only make
finding stuff more difficult.
