What if we simply rename the current unittest.TestCase class to unittest.BaseTestCase, and define unittest.TestCase as "class TestCase(BaseTestCase): pass"?  Then mixin classes can derive from BaseTestCase and have all of the TestCase methods available (for auto-completion, etc.), but won't be picked up by discovery.  Real test classes would derive from TestCase as usual (but would still have to do so explicitly when also using a mixin), and all current code should work without modification.
