I mean "I don't run test suite for bzr itself".

Oh! But I actually using selftest for QBzr.
And I'm using bzr.exe most (all) of the time.
So right now I have all selftest infrastructure working and it suits my needs.

If switch to testtools will mean `bzr.exe selftest -s bp.qbzr` will become broken -- then you'll get
my sincere "you have killed Kenny".

And because it means somebody (who? John? unlikely) have to update windows installers build scripts
it will become true very quickly. Of course you will land such change in bzr.dev and it becomes
problem for me closer to January 2010. I hope I'll have some window to try fixing this myself.
