[Distutils] setuptools dependency_links in dependent packages

I just tried installing one of the many, cool, interrelated zc.*  
packages, zc.authorizedotnet.

That package depends on zc.ssl. zc.ssl has the following in setup.py:

dependency_links = ['http://download.zope.org/distribution/'],

Running easy_install zc.authorizedotnet fails because it doesn't have  
that entry, and the installation of zc.ssl does not pick it up.  
Installing zc.ssl *and then* zc.authorizedotnet works fine.
I'd call that a bug, because zc.authorizedotnet should not need to  
know that one of its required packages has a special home for its code.
