    The whole setuptools/distribute topic is tedious. While I also think that the current solution is somehow weird, I followed the recommendation

    "To use Distribute in your project, the recommended way is to ship distribute_setup.py alongside your setup.py script and call it at the very begining of setup.py like this:

    from distribute_setup import use_setuptools


    from http://pythonhosted.org/distribute/using.html.

    Other Python projects, for example Sphinx, are also taking this path: https://bitbucket.org/birkenfeld/sphinx/src

    So, what would your suggestion be? I'd love to get some reasonable input with respect to this topic.
