Yes it should.  I've just released 0.6a7 to fix this.  It was mostly a 
problem in my release build process, which dynamically generated different 
entry points for 2.3 and 2.4.  Unfortunately, using dynamic entry points in 
setuptools' own setup.py gets into some head-exploding circularities that 
led to data files not being included in the 2.3 releases.  I believe I've 
fixed this now.
