The basic idea of autopath is that after you do 

    svn co http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/trunk/src 

and then 

    python src/pypy/test_all.py 

or any other test file or e.g.

    python src/pypy/interpreter/py.py 

it just works without _any_ setup/installation steps.  
For the same reason we come with the neccessary 
dependencies to run py.py.
