Ok, I won't. Perhaps I could do the horrible hack of renaming
manifest.in for the duration of bdist_egg or install if setuptools is
imported... (yuck)

I looked around quickly, and couldn't find it. There's lots of info on
"include_package_data" etc., but didn't see a way to force ignoring of
manifest.in. I'll try to look into this next week (this week is too
busy) but if anyone can give a good pointer for fixing this quickly
I'd appreciate it.
