Oh yes, either have a copy/symlink of iptest in your $PATH, or use
that trick to run it by hand.  But you do need to have that version of
ipython be the one that is imported, obviously.  For that you can

1 symlink  the IPython/ directory to your something in your PYTHONPATH
2 add the parent directory of IPython to your PYTHONPATH
3 use setupegg.py develop in a virtualenv

I personally use #1, I think Brian uses #3...
