How did you implement this? Does test() just call the command line iptest?

If so, we should make sure iptest can be found on Windows. If you
remember, we have run into lots of problems finding things like
ipcontroller/ipengine on Windows (which ipcluster does).

Kind of: it actually calls run_iptestall(), but that one does end up
calling iptest and trial at the command line. We do use
genutils.find_cmd(), so the same machinery for finding things is used,
and I actually find it from the IPython path if find_cmd fails, so it
should be reasonably robust and os-independent.
