Add support for clearing PageMessages via Apex

Visualforce & Aura

It would help tremendously if we could clear the messages on a visualforce page while executing Apex test methods.

Currently, you can retrieve messages via ApexPages.getMessages(), but you can't clear them.   Folks on the developer forums have made a number of guesses at how to trick the system into clearing the list of messages, but none seem to work.

If we could call ApexPages.clearMessages(), we can then test the success/failure of each call to controller methods and use the ApexPages.hasMessages() and ApexPages.getMessages() functions to test our code.
