Another week without v0.2, but with some other updates and progress
towards v0.2!

There were some big changes about how virtualenvs and testing is

- and got deleted and replaced by tox[1].
  If you used before, you now have to install tox and run
  "tox -e mkvenv" instead.

- "Adopt pytest month"[2] starts tomorrow and qutebrowser got accepted
  and got two helpers (see [3]).

  Thanks in advance to @nicoddemus and @hackebrot for hopefully making
  creating tests for qutebrowser easier and more fun! :)
