understood, but I guess I was under the [mistaken?] impression, that
dynamic support is needed literally in the wheel build step.

for example, going with your idea above, that we need to support 3rd party
tools being dynamic in the "setup.py bdist_wheel" step,  not simply in the
"setup.py dist-info" step.

and as it is, pip does't understand this possibility.
