Sounds like you're close, and it sounds like I left out an important step.

My code does actually have a pkg_resources.requre() statement in it.
But, looking back at my setup script, I neglected to mention this:

eggspth = open("build/eggs.pth", "w")
for egg in eggs:

And then you add eggs.pth to your data_files. That should get rid of
your sys.path.append, and will quite possibly eliminate the need for
you to do pkg_resources.requre().
