[New-bugs-announce] [issue10849] Backport test/__main__

New submission from Alexander Belopolsky <belopolsky at users.sourceforge.net>:

It is much easier to remember and to type -m test instead of -m test.regrtest, but the usefulness of this feature is limited by the fact that it only works with the latest version. Since this does not require any user-visible changes, I think it should be ported to all actively maintained branches.  Note that we used to have a similar issue with -m test.regrtest and it was quite annoying to remember a separate incantation for 2.5.
