[Distutils] Setuptools reindenting reST documentation?

Hi there,

I have a reST documentation containing something like that


  foo foo foo
  foo foo foo

used as long_description.

After building the egg the PKG-INFO file
contains the text with the same indentation level.

I came across this issue because rst2html.py
did not complain before building the egg but
a later conversion of the reST document taken
from the PKG-INFO produced serveral errors.

Why is setuptools doing that?
