Okay, let's call it "Frameworks :: Setuptools Plugin".

I just tried to add that classifier to my "darcsver" plugin, but got  
this result from pypi:

Submitting dist/darcsver-1.0.3.tar.gz to http://www.python.org/pypi
Upload failed (500): There's been a problem with your request
--- Error...

There's been a problem with your request

exceptions.TypeError: unsubscriptable object  

Rerunning "./setup.py register" tells me this:
