Meanwhile, in setuptools 0.7 there will be a completely different way of managing installation locations, and it will not depend on .pth files or on putting eggs first. Instead, it will use direct old-style installation, combined with .egg-info directories for metadata and for installation manifests to support automated uninstallation, upgrades, and integrity verification.
Sorry for following up to a very old thread, but I'm intrigued by the above. I couldn't find anything in the setuptools trunk, so I assume this isn't implemented yet.
Are there any docs that I could read to find out what exactly you guys have planned there?
