[Zope-dev] zope.testing console script

I am comparing nose, py.test and zope.testing, and I realized
zope.testing does not install a console script at
Python level.

it is not really a problem when working with a buildout-centric
approach (thanks to zc.recipe.testrunner),
but how can zope.testing be used with plain Python package ?

Is there any installer available, that would allow running
zope.testing from the shell ?

To advocate zope.testing, I need to be able to demonstrate it can be
used like the other tools available out there :D

If nothing exists, I would like to suggest adding a setuptools console
entry point in zope.testing setup.py file,
to get a python script in the $PYTHON/bin folder, exactly like what
zc.recipe.testrunner does.

It could be called "zope.testrunner" maybe ? (nose= nostests, py.test = py.test)
