Allow loading test data prior to callout testing

Data Import & Integration

Winter '13 introduced the long awaited feature of Testing Callouts. Unfortunately it is missing an important ability, the ability to first load test data prior to making your callouts. If you do load test data (thru either inserts or the new Loading Test Data from Static Resources) you get the error:

System.CalloutException: You have uncommitted work pending. Please commit or rollback before calling out

The standard pattern for test coverage is Load Test Data, then Test Code. Having the above error occur after loading test data severely limits the usefulness of this new feature.

So the idea: Allow test Data to be loaded without causing the "uncommited work pending"  error.
