That's the point which I don't understand that nobody is
Not my egg depends on other packages.
Other package depend on the egg I develop.
And tests are there for ensure that other eggs
will work with my work on a specific egg.
Tests are a setup of tools which can ensure that
my changes are compatible with existing things.

All zope.* tests together are a way to ensure compatibility.
I doesn't make sense to me not participate with all tests
before a single egg get deployed.
Not running all test in a namespace like we have with the
zope package namspace, sounds to me that a package which
doesn't like to agree on all tests should get move to
