Ok, so I've paged this all in. Here's whats up, and some thoughts on fixing it.

Old pbr does indeed have a bug where 'setup.py test' will error with
that unguarded import of what isn't meant to be a dependency.

The reason this started failing is that a bugfix to setuptools - so
that the existing pbr code that wraps commands can wrap commands only
added by setuptools plugins like 'wheel' was merged and included in a
setuptools release.

This causes the pbr testr command to be loaded, which fails in old pbr.

The right answer is a back port of the import guard to pbr < 1.0.0 and
a point release - 0.11.1.

IMO that is :)

I see that a workaround has been committed - installing testrepository
- but I'd hate for folk to cargo cult the idea that pbr could have a
runtime dependency on test-only tools like that.
