I completely agree. I would imagine many or most real-world tests requiring 
async setUp. There is also the question on how a custom loop etc. can be used 
in the unit test class.

How about this: unittest.TestCase gets a very small refactor in which a 
overridable helper method is used to run the test method. This helper method 
can then be changed to run async methods in a subclass AsyncioTestCase (that 
probably should live in asyncio).

Pull request 6005 contained such a helper method, but the async part could be 
implemented in the subclass instead.
