Why not? In that, the core distribution doesn't need to install its own
"test_requires". It would be perfectly feasible to have the module in the
tarball and use it for testing, but to edit the installation scripts to
skip installing it.

If it's the best tool for the job, and avoids wheel re-invention, it seems
the best solution.

(But it should be in a topic branch until post 5.19.0)
