Allow the setting and/or modification of the CreatedDate field in unit tests.

Salesforce Platform, Apex & Visualforce

It is extremely frustrating when I am writing unit tests to test code that performs comparisons of the Created Date (CreatedDate) field or filters off of the CreatedDate field. In my Apex unit test, I cannot create test records and then set or modify the CreatedDate field of those records to test my actual code. To go around this problem I have to devise and formulate extremely ugly workarounds to test my code using unit tests. It would be ideal to allow modification of the CreatedDate field atleast in the context of Apex Unit Tests.
