I think he's saying that a test package will never be discovered by default, because the default value of discover()'s pattern argument is test*.py:

http://hg.python.org/cpython/file/bc322469a7a8/Lib/unittest/loader.py#l152

So I think he wants package directories with names of the form test* to match by default.  The discover() docstring touches on this special case:

    If a test package name (directory with '__init__.py') matches the
    pattern then the package will be checked for a 'load_tests' function. If
    this exists then it will be called with loader, tests, pattern.
