there should be a no_sdist_install option

Issue #11 on hold
Ronny Pfannschmidt created an issue

there are various setups, where install of a sdist for testing may be unwanted, or something like a might not even exist

yet one would want to run something like py.test in there in different envs

    A per-env option would be helpful for running tools like flake8 which don't need to install your package and all their dependencies.

    I agree. I guess something like "do_install", defaulting to "True", would make sense. I'd be happy to review a PR implementing it.

    FYI my current "workaround" is to skipsdist=True in [tox], then use usedevelop in distinct testenvs. Then I manually test my sdist in its own testenv. Not ideal, but passable!

    fix issue11: add a skip_install per-testenv setting which prevents the installation of a package. Thanks Julian Krause.
