I think a lot of milage could be had if there were a way to specify
additional file extensions that should be copied as part of packages
along with .py files. The would certainly be a reasonable 80%
solution for the packages for which I work on the setup.py files.
The next most important improvement would be a way to say the Python
packages are "over there" in cases where they aren't in the top-level
directory where the setup.py resides. I'm thinking of cases where the
Python packages are located in a src/ or lib/python/ directory.
