You've nailed it. I think it is important to know that `requires` is unused. Still this parameter is already present in documentation and causes a lot of trouble (at first I thought there is a bug with pip).

Can we still have proper comment explaining the situation with a pointer to `install_requires` without any reference to setuptools, so that the latest documentation could actually be useful?
