More precisely, what I use for CI is


$ easy_install -U setuptools==dev

but the `python -m` part should work as well ;o)

PS: e.g. that allows to check out code from SVN in order to use
setuptools 0.7.x `test_runner` switch like this

python -W ignore::DeprecationWarning setup.py test -r ciutils:junitrunner
