Installing tests with an app is not the only and often not a sufficient way to
achieve it (dependencies on needed-for-test libs and tools to begin with).
Ideally, a user could grab a single-file script which is self-contained, runs
the tests and produces an e-mail / web site submittable report, i guess.
