To run unit tests (assuming unix-style commandline, adjust as needed for windows):

cd into the SQLAlchemy distribution directory.

Set up the PYTHONPATH:

    export PYTHONPATH=./test/

The unittest framework will automatically prepend './lib/' to sys.path.  this forces the local 
version to run, bypassing any setuptools-installed installations.

To run all tests:

    python test/

Help is available via:

    python test/ --help

    usage: [options] files...
      -h, --help            show this help message and exit

Any unittest module can be run directly from the module file (same commandline options):

    python test/orm/

Additionally, to run a speciic test within the module, specify it as ClassName.methodname:

    python test/orm/ MapperTest.testget
