Id like us to say something along the lines of:

"If your tests have additional dependencies, define "test" extra with
these dependencies.  Also define tests_require and test_suite so that
your package supports the test command."

(Not verbatim and we should give examples.)

Note I used to object to tests_require because the information wasn't
available after installation.  I still do, but I've started using it
anyway.  Tres wrote a plugin to fix this (thanks Tres), but I think
it's easier just to define tests_require (and test suite) along with

Letting people run tests via the setup command is a lot better than
trying to tell them how to use a buildout.
