At this moment I'm going to ask something, (considering Matt's very
accurate reply - Thnx ! ) ...

Does this mean that Bitten hides setuptools `test` command ?

About this (especially if that's true) I've always been thinking that
there's probably (I'm not very sure that's why I'm asking ;) some
overlapping with `test` commands. I mean, e.g. `bdist` commands do not
overlap since you can use a suffix in order to select the one you want
(e.g. bdist_egg, bdist_rpm ...). OTOH with testing tools & framews it
seems (CMIIW pls ) that everybody implements `test` command directly.

For example it would be nice to have cmds like `test_bitten`,
`test_nose`, `test_pytest`, `test_xxx` useful to select the test
runner &| framework carrying out the test.

I'd like to know if it's just my impression ? What d'u think about that ?
