Thanks. I don't think it is fair to expect pretty code there in any case.

I noticed that you put the classifiers list as a string (same for
platform). I think it is expected to be a list, no ?

Maybe slightly more controversial, I think the manifest should be
"evaluated". The current system of inclusion + exclusion is too
baroque to my taste, and makes it near-impossible to make reproducible
