Yeah, uh...

As I understand it the implementation was previously horrendously broken.  Now it is not.  Given that it is now no longer broken, and some quite reasonable tests I've seen make use of it (in particular: tests for Divmod ClickChronicle do some very expensive setup in a setUpClass), I'd like to see it stick around.
