Egg tests don't get installed.

Sometimes you just don't care about other eggs' tests, sometimes tests
are known to be broken [1], sometimes you don't have all the
requirements for tests and they'll break anyway.  If -test is recursive,
there's no easy way to skip tests you don't want.  If -test is not
recursive, you can always come up with a way to execute all tests for
all dependencies (you can make a script based on the dependency tree or
use test tools like salmonella).


All the best.
