Because nobody got around to building that functionality yet. Feel  
free to donate this functionality :-)

BTW. On my machine:

$ packman list
altgraph     - 0.6.8.dev-r9    - system, develop, active
bdist-mpkg   - 0.4.3.dev-r14   - system, develop, active
cElementTree - 1.0.5-20051216  - system, active
Cheetah      - 1.0             - system, active
CherryPy     - 2.2.1           - system, active
configobj    - 4.3.2           - system, active
docutils     - 0.4             - system, active

One of these days I'm going to polish this up and publish it  
somewhere, it's a command-line wrapper for setuptools. There's also a  
GUI layer (for OSX only), but that's far from finished.
