Using run_tests.py would cover everything unless it has been disabled
on Python 3, or depends on some C code which hasn't been compiled
(in which case the test should be skipped).

Note we've edited setup.py not to try and compile any C code on Python 3
(because currently none of it works). You'll need to edit setup.py to
compile any C code you work on for Python 3.

For C modules which don't use NumPy, change this bit:

elif sys.version_info[0] == 3:
    # TODO - Must update our C extensions for Python 3

For extensions using NumPy, see class build_ext_biopython
