trial should support a assertNotUnequal method

assertEqual and assertEquals tests the __eq__ method. It would be useful to have a method to test that __ne__ correctly returns false for equal objects.

What do you think about having an assert method that tests both ==, not !=, and cmp at the same time? I noticed that right now you're writing tests where assertEqual and assertNotUnequal are essentially duplicated. Having an assert method that does both would make things less redundant.

I have an assertReallyEqual and assertReallyNotEqual in , but of course the implementation in Twisted could be different.

twisted.python.test.test_util.EqualityTests might have some ideas to incorporate into a general helper.
