This is what devpi does and in my day to day use I miss issues 
sometimes, because it's a separate env and running all envs takes too 
long to do before push, so I only see it in CI.

I do the same and it catches most things up front, but again it's 
nothing one can easily enforce or make in your face.

That's what pytest-pep8 and pytest-flake do for me.

So I guess this is more a matter of taste which tools one uses.

Thanks for the insight into your workflow.

I will stop here, because it gets way off topic.
