I don't think that's a problem, although I can't see why you would
need it in this case.

I don't see why not, they would work the same way. Possibly the global
_namespace_packages dictionary needs to be shared by both setuptools
and the new module, but that can easily be handled by importing it
from setuptools if setuptools is installed.
