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!
