So, to clarify: the tests I am deleting in this branch verify behaviour that a) I was unable to achieve on PyPy, b) I do not feel is particularly useful for actual application code, and c) appears useful for testing purposes, but is not actually used by any other tests. The primary motivation for deleting them is a), because I'd like to make Axiom work on PyPy, but I think b) and c) are also legitimate supporting motivations.

I suppose this does qualify as a backwards-incompatible change that should go through a deprecation phase, but I can't think of a way to actually detect that somebody is relying on this behaviour and issue a DeprecationWarning.
