I don't want to implement the code myself, I just want to produce lowest-common-denominator wheels that can be used anywhere, and consume wheels that conform to the spec correctly. This is not a hypothetical question - in the first instance I'm looking to add support for loading setuptools/pip from wheels in virtualenv, and I need to know what code to bundle to make that happen.

Probably Wheel at this point. There's just the problem with the scripts which we need to actually get into the PEP and implemented.
