"""IPython Test Suite Runner.
This module provides a main entry point to a user script to test IPython
itself from the command line. There are two ways of running this script:
1. With the syntax `iptest all`. This runs our entire test suite by
calling this script (with different arguments) recursively. This
causes modules and package to be tested in different processes, using nose
or trial where appropriate.
2. With the regular nose syntax, like `iptest -vvs IPython`. In this form
the script simply calls nose, but with special command line flags and
plugins loaded.
