Ahh! THAT is the role pip plays in building. It's the way that you get
setuptools features in a plain distutils-based package. So conda _could_
play the same trick, and inject setuptools into packages that don't use it
already, but why bother -- pip does that for us.
OK -- I'm going to try to find some time to play with this -- I do think it
will solve some of the issues I've had, and if it works well, maybe we can
move it toward a new standard of practice for conda-python-packages.
Thanks -- clarity at last!
