It doesn't entirely "do away with setup.py" (it still relies on a
relatively minimal boilerplate setup.py which loads its setuptools
entrypoint), but does allow you to basically abstract away most
common configuration into declarative setup.cfg and requirements.txt
files (similar to some of the pyproject.toml use cases Donald et al
have for PEP 518).
