Well, pip install -e doesn't create a dist-info directory (it relies
on setuptools' setup.py develop, so it's actually setuptools that
doesn't create the dist-info directory) so it's not pip that will need
to do this. But as long as it's clear from the PEP what the various
tools need to do, then fair enough.
