py.test xdist plugin: distributed testing and loop failure

The pytest-xdist plugin extends `py.test`_ to ad-hoc distribute test runs to multiple CPUs or remote machines. It requires setuptools or distribute which help to pull in the neccessary execnet and pytest-core dependencies.

Install the plugin locally with:

python install

or use the package in develope/in-place mode, particularly useful with a checkout of the `pytest-xdist repository`_:

python develop

or use one of:

easy_install pytest-xdist

pip install pytest-xdist

for downloading and installing it in one go.
