Like I said, I’m perfectly fine documenting that if you add an entry_points.txt to the .dist-info directory, that is an INI file that contains a section named “console_scripts” and define what is valid inside of the console_scripts section that it will generate script wrappers, then fine. But we should leave any other section in this entry_points.txt file as undefined in packaging terms, and point people towards setuptools for more information about it if they want to know anything more than what we need for packaging.
To be more specific here, the hypothetical thing we would be documenting/standardizing here is console entry points and script wrappers, not a generic plugin system. So console scripts would be the focus of the documentation.
