It loads some directives that you only want to be available during functional 
tests. For example, it creates special principals, so that the tests are 
always the same. We are also often registering package-specific extensions by 
placing pacakge.path-ftesting.zcml files into package-includes. This is 
useful to register fake Mailing or Relation Database Adapter utilities.
