In [setuptools 581](https://github.com/pypa/setuptools/issues/581), I’ve drafted a version of setuptools that essentially drops support for self installation, relying on pip install as the only supported mechanism for installing setuptools, both in the ez_setup.py bootstrap (for which there’s a minimally compatible shim for replacement) and in the codebase itself.
I invite everyone to install the pre-release linked in the ticket and provide feedback there. I’ll give it at least a week before I cut an official release. If you need more time, just let me know.
