I don't understand your question.
Do you mean "should I just subclass the 'build' command and the
'develop' command"? or "should I just subclass the 'build' command
and develop my own commands based on that?" or "should I just
subclass the 'build' command and develop my own commands from scratch
Personally, however, if I had to do what you're doing, I'd package a
build_mo command as a setuptools plugin, and add it to my
build_requires dependencies. That way, I could use it with multiple
projects. I'd still have to do the short 'build' subclass in the
setup.py, but it's not a lot of code to add.
