Actually, that raises another questions I've been wanting to ask.  Is
there a good story for using a project buildout for running tests while
still supporting "python setup.py test" for the same project?  Is there
documentation or a good example of this somewhere?

On a somewhat related note, is there a paster script that does initial
testing buildout layout for a new project?  How about initial tests
layout for a new project?
