Yeah, if you're okay with requiring tox 3.1+ then you can use that 
instead. We've been avoiding it for now in other projects because some 
of the distros aren't shipping tox 3.1 yet and some people prefer not to 
mix distro Python packages and pip ones. At some point I expect we'll 
migrate everything to the new behavior though.
