When you design such a thing, please remember the people who are producing 
packages that aren't pure python, but python+haskell, jython+java, etc.
It would be a shame if they couldn't find a way to indicate how to test their
stuff as well.  And remember many of them do not use setup.py at all, since
it _doesn't_ do what they need.
