Depending on setuptools for tests in another evil thing. We should not assume a 
*setup* tool to be a testrunner, and we should not depend on the behaviour of 
setuptools to write tests. Setuptools is already doing too many things and 
Tarek 
is taking care (with distutils2 and distribute) to cleany separate the 
functionalities, such as installing, distributing, etc.

Testing is not related to configuring nor installing, and "python setup.py 
test" 
is no more meaningful than "python setup.py makethecoffee".
