This particular solution works for me. But the point is that it can be done pretty easily. However, the lack of a setup_requires-like feature still makes things pretty impossible short of shipping a copy of all the required setup hooks with the projects that use them. Certainly doable, but far from ideal.
Right, and I don't think distutils2 can really add setup_requires without blessing a package manager.
I'm confused by this statement. distutils2 _includes_ a package manager (pysetup); it has no need to bless an external one. What am I missing?
