No, I want them to load just like plugins specified in a config file,
because if I don't, as you say...

... then I have to write the auto-loaded plugins differently from
other plugins, which seems wrong. So I'd like some way to tell
TestProgram to load a batch of plugins along with whatever
user-specified ones it finds. Nose does this via an optional
addplugins arg to TestProgram -- which is also very useful in writing
tests for plugins. So I'd like to see something like that, or the
ability to specify one or more config files to load in addition to the
default/user-specified config.
