Alright, I've put in my MANIFEST.in file:
But when I run ``python setup.py install`` the files don't appear in
the egg that is installed to .../site-packages/
The SOURCES.txt file DOES have the correct list of files, though, and
when I use ``setup.py sdist`` the correct files are included there too.
Is there some subtle difference between an "install" and an "sdist"
that I'm missing?
