Well, technically it's there, but structurally it's not. This is  
because I was restructuring "The Guide" today and was interrupted and  
only returned at home a minute ago. Tomorrow I'll fix it again ...

The reason is to decouple both: the package "PHPUnit" only contains  
PHPUnit. In case any other developer would like to create his own  
test runner or needs whatever functionality from PHPUnit he can refer  
to that package but doesn't need the "TestPackage". A second reason  
is that the version number of the PHPUnit package will always be the  
same as the PHPUnit version number.

So, please keep it that way unless you have a strong reason to change  
it. Technically your test runner is only using / exending the PHPUnit
