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?
Also nope, although googling "setuptools nest" (without the quotes) will probably find you some of my previous posts on the subject.
