i'd like to support turning my guess version from hg metadata tool into
a setup dependency and thus kill the need to ship a python file.
Currently i just import it + call a function,
but that doesn't exactly work if the module is missing and a dependency.
Is there any way to turn it into some sort of plugin/extension that
automatically gets installed/used to get that metadata.
