I have made a pywcs-1.10-4.7 release, available here: 


and tagged in SVN here:


That should remove the need for the crazy wcsset_ patching, and also provide some basic unit tests for running with nose.

I successfully tested the package build process against the SVN trunk,
so a new version would be fine for me.

Additionally to Sergio's patch, I will also remove all references to the
test fits files and the wcslib includes in the defsetup.py, since they
are not needed for the binary package. This makes the package smaller
without the need to remove the tests from the source tarball.

Would you just tag the version in SVN or also provide a downloadable tar
file at stsci?
