According to https://docs.python.org/2/library/unittest.html#type-specific-methods

"The assertEqual() method dispatches the equality check for objects of
the same type to different type-specific methods.  These methods are already
implemented for most of the built-in types..."

And under addTypeEqualityFunc it says:

"The list of type-specific methods automatically used by assertEqual() are summarized in the following table.  Note that it’s usually not necessary to invoke these methods directly."

So isn't it best just to call assertEqual() in the first place? It sounds like that will delegate to assertListEqual() if available, and work in a simpler older way otherwise.
