There's more to these tests than just "running" them.

In order to test some code, we had to actually try to modify things
like time, mounted file-systems, etc. I know lots of efforts were put so
that they are least intrusive, but think about trying to test
securelevel 2 implications and then reverting back...

So while I think it's good having them in the tree, I am not sure we
want to automatically run them just if Python is installed. :)
