Automatically testing down the dependency chain on package build

Registered by Evan Dandrea on 2011-10-17

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Intermediary branch to run tests and verification against before packages hit the archive proper" for updated plans.

We should unpack and run the unit tests for any reverse dependencies of the core libraries during package build in order to prevent breaking said dependencies with a dodgy upload. For example, an upload of GTK+ should trigger the unit tests for ubiquity and software-center to be run.
