Good catch.  Under previous use cases, the only time you'd have 
pkg_resources and *not* setuptools, it would be if you were bundling 
pkg_resources.  Nowadays, though, some distros split setuptools from 
pkg_resources, so you can have an older, distro-supplied 
pkg_resources, but no setuptools.

Anyway, I've fixed this in SVN and on the website now.  Thanks!
