    The need here is larger than just storing the setup_requires, and It's linked to the pep 426.

    People packaging python module on debian, or gentoo, or whatever would like to get a lots of informations from the python's package as the short|long description, etc , to get it a little bit automatised. It's a hard work, and providing those kind of solution may help people doing some "devops" to automatize packaging.

    Thanks for taking care of this.
