I hope none of the "Zope folks" have said setuptools is evil. We're big fans and are adopting it whole heartedly. We want it to succeed.
Speaking for myself, I think it would benefit from being simpler. It is a lot more complex that I suspect you realize. Of course, there are things I might do differently. But it is a great accomplishment. You should be very proud of it and we are very grateful.
Yes, hooray for setuptools!
I hope that it continues to garner use and support so that it becomes a nexus of cooperation among programmers and users.
