It appears that the sdist command doesn't consult the data passed
in the package_data option to setup. I want to name data
that isn't under version control for inclusion. Because
sdist doesn't pay attention to package_data, the data I'm
naming isn't included in the source distribution. It is included
if I build an egg directly. This appears to me to be a bug.
