well if debian/tests/control already exists adt-run will not call
autodep8 at all.

what we could do is make so that if debian/tests/control.autodep8.in (or
something similar) exists, autodep8 begins its output with the contents
of that file, and appends whhat it would normally produce.

But note that in specific case of the current Python support, if your
manually specified tests do anything useful all against the package, no
matter how small, that already renders the simple import test pointless.
