python -m unittest discover -t . foo

where foo is a package

will not trigger load_tests in foo/

To reproduce:

mkdir -p demo/tests
cd demo
cat <<EOF > tests/
import sys
import os

def load_tests(loader, tests, pattern):
    print("HI WE ARE LOADING!")
    this_dir = os.path.dirname(__file__)
    tests.addTest(, pattern=pattern))
    return tests

python -m unittest discover -t . tests

(Pinging for reviews - I'm going to time out and land this early next week if I can't get a review on it, since this is actually a fairly significant oversight and I don't want unittest2 to run ahead of the stdlib - that way leads unmaintainable madness).

With one minor doc change (break up the really long sentence), this looks good to go to me.
