Got a project for someone...
Take holger krekel's wonderful apipkg and setuptools' versatile pkg_resources.py, put them together, and define a "nice" API that exposes only the parts that are used externally. Including both the "installed/requirements" database and the actual resources "files on __path__" bits.
Bonus points if you download every sdist from pypi and grep for "import pkg_resources" to see how it is really used.
