This is a great news.

One question: Does "pear run-tests" behave like the "phpunit" you use?
(and exit with !=0 if there is a failure).

We can add buildtime check to pkg-php-tools but we should ensure that
there is a guessable command to run.

I thought that there were no good way to have the Composer autoload
systemwide, untill I read this message:


However, I'm currently too busy (and don't maintain any composer
package) to add this feature soon.
