The recipe takes two arguments:

- a list of regular expressions to describe packages that should be
- a list of regular expressions to describe packages that should be

There is currently a builtin list for each of them that gets appended to 
the ones you specify when using the recipe in your buildout.

The compattest is intended to check the trunks of packages located in 
one repository like svn.zope.org against the development version of the 
package you're working on so you can see whether your changes will cause 
others that depend on you to break.

I think it's one of the issues we need to solve in our process and it 
was actually very valuable when doing the large dependency refactoring 
at the sprint.

If you have a multi-core machine, you can also ask it to run the various 
test runners in parallel. I was able to execute the 100+ package tests 
in less than 10 minutes on an 8-core machine.
