I think I am confused.  If we begin shipping pypy without a py.test
that is known to work with it, then some year in the future some poor
soul (maybe me) who happens to want to run an old verion of pypy --
say a hypothetical pypy 1.5 that comes with no included py.test -- 
may find that your latest and greatest py.test does not run the tests.
And then it will be a matter of archeology to find out what version of
py.test does work with this release.  Is there something wrong with
this understanding?
