okay, these tests are running now on the goldegg bundle (https:// 
svn.plone.org/svn/plone/bundles/goldegg).  it's true that there are  
some undesireable dependencies.  the problem is that PloneTestCase  
used to override parts of PortalGenerator to take shortcuts when  
constructing the site in a test environment.  we have not yet  
implemented a similar setup w/ the GenericSetup based installation,  
so test construction is a bit slower, and relatively extraneous  
products like kupu and ExternalEditor need to be installed before the  
tests will run.

now that i've made the changes to PloneTestCase (which Archetypes  
uses) and the ATContentTypes test setup, the tests are at least  
running.  Archetypes has 10 failures, 92 errors out of 329 tests.   
ATCT has 13 failures and 4 errors out of 635 tests.
