My preferred fix is to wrap "an exception during import" as a test that fails instead of an AttributeError. This would definitely be a new feature rather than a bugfix - so it could only be in 3.4. 

It could be made available to Python 2.7 through the unittest2 backport.

None of the current patches implement my preferred solution yet.
