A couple of things:

- I've never had to use anything that would require the kind of 
templating being discussed here, so please make setup.cfg "just work" if 
setup.cfg.in isn't there.

- I think any kind of templating language is *way to heavyweight*. If 
you need anything more than simple string substitution, then the code 
should be in setup.py
