Bug Description

There is no reason to install the tests directory, and doing so can actually cause package manager file conflicts if multiple packages do so.

See patch for an easy solution.

Actually you need to exclude the submodules of the tests module too, so the line should be:

packages=find_packages(exclude=['tests', 'tests.*'])

I agree that the current behaviour is annoying. Installing tests (in a better place!) is often handy so that you can do as-installed tests, though, and many Python packages do so. IMO the best thing to do here would instead be to move the tests to a storm.tests package so that they won't conflict with anything else.
