Well, if each project is going to be built for only one platform,
sure. But the setup.cfg *overrides* the .pydistutils.cfg, so you don't
want to distribute a bunch of site/platform-specific options in the
project's published setup.cfg.
In any case, I thought your original issue had to do with getting
easy_install to handle these packages automatically, without modifying the
original packages in any way. And that's the context in which I've been
answering your questions.
