Running the test suite
There are several ways of running the test ruite:
Run the test with the current Python interpreter:
From the toplevel directory, run: nosetests -v -w tests/
Use Tox to run the test suite in several virtualenvs with several interpreters
From the toplevel directory, run: tox -e py26,py27,py32 this will run the test suite on Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.2 (you’ll need to have them installed beforehand)

Python >= 2.6 is supported. Yes, that includes Python 3 :-)
