Smaller code.  Its easier writing something like this

 self.assertRaises(AssertionError, func, arg1, arg2)

instead of:

try:
   func(arg1, arg2)
except AssertionError:
   pass
else:
   raise AssertionError, \
   "Test should have raised an exception."  # or something

You could look at the em_viz tests or the gui_thread tests (there is
only one of these in gui_thread though) for concrete examples.

Sure, I was just suggesting.  And this is useful only when you want to
make sure that something raises an error.
