[New-bugs-announce] [issue27123] Allow `install_headers` command to follow specific directory structure

New submission from Sylvain Corlay:

(instead of making a flat copy of the specified list of headers)

Unlike wheel's `data_files`, which allows to specify data files as a list of tuples

`[(target_directory, [list of files for target directory])]` 

the `headers` setup keyword argument only let's you specify a list of files that will be copied over to a sub-directory of `sysconfig.get_path('include')`.

It would be useful to enable the same feature for headers as we have for data files.
