Can we make the regular tests import and also run the related C API 
tests? So that a normal run wouldn't normally include the entire C API 
test directory, but would include test classes in the related Python 
test modules? (Maybe there's a way to decorate the test classes for this?)

I agree with the intent, but also think that's quite a disadvantage. It 
would be good to avoid it.
