Having worked some with CppUnit, I have wondered similarly. It's hard to
judge when a particular "feature" is put in to work around limitations or
differences in the language. When I studied JUnit, I didnt fully grasp
the need for setUp and tearDown. This explaination makes some sense. The
equivalent is simply member variables or something similar in C++.
