Issue #165 wontfix

ez_setup.py should have its version embedded in the source

It doesn't feel right to publish source code without designating its version anywhere. Please consider embedding some version inside ez_setup.py. This would make it easier/possible to reason about scenarios involving downloading and running ez_setup.py like the one described at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21732703/

    Since ez_setup.py releases are made in conjunction with setuptools releases, the "default version" of setuptools to be downloaded is also the same. To track the version of ez_setup.py separately would require treating it like a separate project (bumping its version independent of setuptools), which would in turn imply tracking it a separate repository.

    If the default version is not sufficient, I'm going to recommend this as won't fix, as there aren't resources on this project to handle this additional administrative work.
