sure -- but isn't that use-case already supported by wheel -- define your
own wheelhouse that has the ABI you know you need, and point pip to it.
Not that it would hurt to add a bit more to the filename, but it seems you
Have a specific system definition you are building for -- so you want to
give it a name. One step better than defining a wheelhouse.
You want to put it up on PyPi and have the folks with compatible systems be
abel to get, and know it will work -- THAT is a big 'ol can of worms that
maybe you're better off going with conda....
