Not me.

I use distutils in a simple manner for some small projects
and setup.py is in the main directory of the project, so for
different projects I've got different setup.py

i.e. I've got the license, README, and setup.py in the 
same directory, but they are also shipped in the tarball
made when running : python setup.py sdist

Download any python program from my website for *very simple*
