Hah! Should http://docs.python.org/devguide/ be updated to reflect this 
or does this only affect Mac OS? (or should we correct the build so it

Unfortunately, still:

buzzkill:cpython chris$ ./python.exe -m test -j3
/Users/chris/LocalHG/cpython/python.exe: No module named test.__main__; 
'test' is a package and cannot be directly executed
