It is only needed if you have manually maintained files in 
there.  Setuptools needs one because its own entry points can't be 
bootstrapped any other way.  Other projects have manually-created files 
like for SQLObject schema stuff, and an older version of Trac had a 
configuration file in there.

If you aren't manually maintaining files in there, then no, you don't need 
it in Subversion and can add it to your svn:ignore list for the parent 

(Btw, I haven't forgotten about the split-up discussion and have more 
comments, but I've got a deadline to meet today; will write more this evening.)
