You can't run tests on an sdist: at a minimus, you have to build it and
run the tests with the build directory on your path. Tests run inside a
"develop" egg (a VCS checkout) are always potentially influenced by the
environment they are run in, which is why we need buildbots (or the
equivalent) for each supported platform.
