despite looking prettier this does not work because it looks for the
"notdb" module in the current directory. It could work (maybe) if we set
PYTHONPATH. Would that be better than the 'cd'?

I think something like

printf "[pytest]\nminversion=3.0\n" > $conf
if pytest-3 -c $conf --version >/dev/null; then
rm -f $(conf)

should work.
