And that's what you get when you run bin/buildbot in a checkout of any
zope.foo package -- an entire configured environment, sufficient for
testing that package.  IMHO.

That would be great.  Do you know how to make setup.py test invoke the
zope.testing test runner?  The standard unittest test runner that
setuptools uses by default is not sufficient -- it doesn't know anything
about test layers.
