Impossible to put a semi-colon in commands= entry #33
The official way to run the numpy testsuite is:
python -c 'import numpy; numpy.test()'
However, if I put that in a commands= entry, then the ; is treated as starting a comment, and there is no possible way to escape it. I guess technically this is a py.iniparser bug, but there it is.

Hum, unfortunate. I think we added ";" for compatibility-to-ini-parsing reasons. Not sure how to best fix the issue at the moment. As they are probably not too many users of py.iniparser we are probably free to change parsing semantics a bit.
