Agreed. So in order to automatically satisfy our dependency on
simplejson using simplejson's source tarballs, we can either ask Bob
Ippolito (the author and packager of simplejson) to please switch to
the patched version of ez_setup.py and pass min_version="0.6a9" to
it, or else we can ask him to please set his version="0.6a9" and
start hosting setuptools 0.6a9 eggs for his users.
Do I correctly understand those options?
Thank you for your time.
