this is more of a question... direct me elsewhere if more appropriate.
my setup generates wheels for everything (including setuptools/wheel/distlib), and installs with
wheel module (this will be moved to distlib as time allows), thus i have 100% non-legacy environment.
the problem is the pkg_resources in current setuptools completely chokes when distributions are installed to a non-root zipfile, eg.
path/to/python.zip/lib/python2.7/site-packages/*.dist-info. granted this is a setuptools problem i need to report (and furthermore, unzipped eggs within such a zipfile will cause exponential scanning of itself for each egg added, and never completes)... is there a nice way to handle this in distlib alone? already? other thoughts?
i saw the
pkg_resources.py impl submitted to pip (https://github.com/pypa/pip/pull/909):
...and tried that out (after fix
_legacy_key), but it is missing
load_entry_point is the only thing i need and it seems easy-ish to implement, but i thought i'd drop a note here to learn more about the problem itself, or any other relevant infos... thoughts?
