Seems I didn't make my point clear:

I wasn't arguing against PortalTestCase. The problem is that 
PortalTestCase is shipped with Zope, not with the CMF. But the correct 
implementation of PortalTestCase depends on the CMF version. Using 
PortalTestCase creates a circular dependency between Zope and CMF.
