The "Module pkg_resources was already imported from"-like warnings when
running something inside buildout are irritating.

They also break a script I have that calls "python setup.py --name" on several
packages to grab their name.  Normally you get the name, now you get several
lines of warnings, followed by the name.

Otherwise I have to go back to a regex :-)
