That's one of the nice things about setuptools, but
we are compelled to have a fully working "distutils" script
as "setup.py". The largest users (the Ubuntu repackagers
and us) prefer a system which does not silently pull in

We also have a (poorly named) setup_egg.py as an alternative,
to make it easier for anyone repackaging as eggs, which
could use this.
