This is a enhancement request in order to overwrite WP_UnitTestCase_Base::factory() static method in child classes of WP_UnitTestCase_Base.


To be able to overwrite WP_UnitTest_Factory.
As an example, as third party plugin could write its own factory extending WP_UnitTest_Factory for testing purposes.
And to benefit from WP_UnitTestCase_Base features, its test case would also extend it.
But overwriting WP_UnitTestCase_Base::factory() has no effect since it's called with the self keyword instead of the static keyword which has late static binding (see here and here).
