Case 1 applies to all the unit tests.
Case 2 applies to all the unit tests whose dependencies are present.
Case 3 applies to those modules with C code.

I don't really understand your divisions.  If was compiling Biopython myself,
I've want all the tests run.  If I installed a pre-compiled version Biopython
(from a Linux distribution or the Windows installers), I'd still want to try
and run all the tests.

There is the special case of trying to use Biopython without the C code modules
(e.g. installing from source without a C compiler, or for repackaging a subset
of the modules), but that is atypical.
