I think you do want to make the tests available to users, but they don't
necessarily have to be part of the base package.
If the tests are large relative to the base package, a fairly common
solution is to split them out into a sub-package, say aplpy-test.
(This is in addition to running them during the build.)
regards, tom lane
$ du -sh aplpy/
$ du -sh tests/
So I think that a split is not needed in this case.
