One difficulty is that trial cannot currently run the test suite with tsr.
tsr is not really a reactor in the same way that poll, select, and gtk are
reactors: it has a run method, but calling it isn't how you invoke the magic
secrets of tsr.  Instead, you set it up to cooperate with another event loop.

So we need to have a way to run the tests at all first.  Then we can set up
a buildslave (which will presumably fail most of the test suite).  Then someone
needs to start fixing it :)
