Bug Description

The setup.py magic to do -next-91 as a version works well when you have a checkout. Sadly it doesn't work well when you make a tarball and then want to use the tarball else where:

./setup.py sdist (makes testtools-next-91.tar.gz)
put next-91 in lp's versions.cfg
bootstrap then extracts this and runs setup again, which goes boom - no bzrlib, no working tree.
We should save the version in the manifest or something, for this use case.

From time to time LP may want to run unreleased versions of testtools.
LP wants tar.gz files, and uses setuptools grahmagic to verify that
the version matches.
