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