[Distutils] [issue124] Add support for installing test requirements to 'develop' command

New submission from Tres Seaver <tseaver at palladion.com>:

The attached patch adds a '--with-test-requirements' / '-t' option to the 'develop' command:  the rationale is that when developing a package, one should
be able to run the tests without polluting the local checkout directory with
the eggs specified by its 'tests_require':  those eggs should be installed just
as the other ones mandated by 'install_requires'.

I would actually prefer to make this behavior the default, perhaps with a
command-line-switch to disable it, but think that backward compatibility
trumps that itch.
