If unit tests only test classes in isolation, then there's no way that they could be a good substitute for static type checking (as you claimed earlier). What about inter-unit errors?
FYI, the examples you posted are contrived. They either involve a significant amount of refactoring and redesign (eShop) or a heavy reliance on standard libraries (Twisted). Python is definitely less verbose than C++, but 90% is laughable. Remember that we're comparing langauge features here, not programming environments.
