Hmm, now I know why no-one uses setup_requires or test_requires...
This is not a clear cut issue. I can see why people might feel as you
do, but I belong to the other camp of people who believe that all eggs

I guess I'll move those packages either to install_requires or
extras_require['test'] and be done with it.
