[Distutils] Installing header files with setuptools

Perhaps this is a bug or perhaps I'm just doing it wrong, but I can't
figure out a good way to install C header files as part of a setuptools
With distutils, there's a "headers" argument to setup() that installs
the header files in their proper spot, but setuptools ignores this. It
looks like setuptools is hijacking the install command and manually
running install_lib, install_data, etc, but never install_headers.
Does setuptools expect me to do this in a different way, or is this
something that should be fixed?
