My efforts to look into this have resulted in 
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/collective.ploneseltest - feedback welcome!

I think it's working now, though I'm not 100% sure I understand how the 
test tear-down is being done with PloneTestCase.FunctionalTestCase, 
which in turn means that there may be better ways of preparing data.

I've also had some strange transaction/_p_jar problems. I've done an 
explicit commit that seems to fix it, but there may be other similar 
problems that I haven't run into yet.
