Why would we want to pull in all of Zope3 as a dependency (worse, a
hidden one) before testing an egg?  If the egg's dependencies are
broken, I *want* the tests to fail.  I don't think testing against a
"fat" meta-egg satisfies that goal.  Fix the egg so that its
'install_requires' or 'tests_requires' are sufficient to make the tests
pass instead.

I thought Roger was one of the folks looking to *reduce* the set of
dependencies his application had on zope3 coee -- testing against the
meta-egg actually makes that problem worse.
