Well, it's open source, you can look for yourself :)


I'm using find_packages, the package_data stuff.. maybe other stuff 
implicitly?  I didn't read the source or documentation for setuptools, 
I just cut+pasted from PEAK's setup.py.  I went to PEAK first because I 
knew it dealt with installing multiple top level packages with data 
files and such, and I knew these things were terribly difficult with 
stock distutils.  "Features" will probably be useful to me in the 
future, but it's not something I needed for this.
