I'll do my best to make it there and agree this is a good place :)

I think it makes most sense to avoid relying on setup.py - with
tox you can have "python setup.py test" as your test command which
works fine.   If we want to test pypi packages that don't
have a tox.ini (or setup.cfg) then we could try heuristics to
create tox.ini files like "python setup.py test" and generate
test environments based on the TROVE identifiers (python/python3).
