It is always so clear in my mind.
Currently AFAIK the check for the external dependencies is in each test
file. I am suggesting moving them out of the test files into something more
available to users.
>>> from Bio import externalcheck as ec
>>> ec.check('ClustalW

>>> ec.which('ClustalW

The all this logic is available outside of the tests and maintained in one
