Document the new difference between unittest2 and Python 2.7

 documented as being empty and subclasses shouldn't need to call it. This would
 make the change backwards incompatible and needs thinking about.
 
+In Python 2.7 the ``TestSuite`` held references to each ``TestCase``
+after ``TestSuite.run``. In unittest2, ``TestSuite.run`` sets those
+references to None so that the garbage collector can free their memory.
+Subclasses can restore the earlier behavior by overriding
+``TestSuite._removeTestAtIndex``.
 
 
 Issues
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
