_run_setuptools_install is only intended to support setuptools setup.py, converting .egg-info to .dist-info, internally. IMO, you should not care about the differences between setuptools/distutils1/setuptools at this level, as it should be taken care at the install level.

When installing old setuptools-based setup.py, the .egg-info should be gone, replaced by a shiny new .dist-info folder. I'm not sure why you're talking about it in the context of develop, can you clarify this?
