I was curious as to why 0.9.2 didn't pick up the tests -- have they
drastically modified the test discovery since?  If we can't work
around it, I don't think it is the end of the world -- upgrading to
0.10.x is trivial, and will soon be the standard in most distributions

It's absolutely worth it -- the new testing machinery addresses a
number of problems we've had in the past, a major one of which was
tests not being picked up on all platforms.  Looking at the buildbot
results, I saw the number of tests varying between 714 and 803.

Thanks for all the hard work you put into this!  I'm a satisfied
customer, for sure.
