A lot of the FUD around setuptools' multi-versioning was around precisely this point (path munging, etc) and I want to understand how the proposed solution avoids repeating those problems (to the extent that they were real and not imagined).

Yea my primary concerns is that the cost is paid only by those who use the feature and to make sure it's not something that's the way it works isn't going to leave us regretting the decision down the road.
