[Biopython-dev] run_tests.py rewrite

Hi everybody,

I just uploaded to CVS a rewritten version of Tests/run_tests.py. This new version automatically detects whether a test is a unittest-style test or a print-and-compare test. By doing so, the unittest-style tests no longer need to have a file containing the test output in Tests/output. For users, run_tests.py works essentially the same as before.

As changing the test framework is tricky business, I'd like to ask you to be careful with the Biopython tests, in particular to make sure that there are no bugs in the testing framework that would let test failures go unnoticed. If no problems show up in the next few weeks, we can start removing the output files of unittest-style tests from Biopython, as they're no longer needed.
