I had tried that but I was having problems with un-installed packages.
I have this so far, which works with *nux, but I'll have to figure out
how to find the correct Python
executable in Windows (I think using different Python versions could
yield different requirements?).
pkg_name = "pycopia-net"
os.system("/usr/bin/env python %s egg_info" % setup_file)
ws = WorkingSet(setup_dir)
env = Environment()
dist = env.best_match(Requirement.parse(pkg_name), ws)
