Hi holger,

In some of your configuration examples you have something like this:

envlist = py26,py31

And I am wondering if this is meant to have functionality like RVM (Ruby
Version Manager) where it lets you build whatever version of Python
you need to run your tests.

I'm thinking this is probably not the case, but that would be a very
interesting feature if possible.

Thanks for sharing the release!
