It will be better for you in general if you just use "setup.py sdist"
to generate your tarballs, as they will then have the right name, and
also will include the distutils PKG-INFO.
(This is a distutils feature and doesn't require setuptools, although
the distutils are a bit trickier to get the tarball to include
everything, as you have to explicitly list in MANIFEST.in anything
that distutils doesn't automatically pick up. Setuptools on the
other hand will automatically include anything that's under revision
control in your project, unless you use MANIFEST.in to tell it *not*
to. CVS+SVN support is built in, plugins for various other revision
control systems can be found on PyPI.)
