That's a use case that I'm not very *interested* in supporting personally - however it may well be a use case that was "designed in" and that others have a need for (I didn't implement expectedFailure support). 

I think expectedFailure should be used sparingly and for a utility function to be *able* to turn a failure into a expectedFailure sounds actively dangerous.
