So, sorry for backing up to this, but isn't it true that many projects
do custom stuff in their setup.py that they wouldn't be able to do in
setup.cfg? Is the goal really to make that impossible/unnecessary? In
Mercurial, for example, we have a fairly large setup.py that helps us
deal with many kinds of issues: incomplete Python installations on
different platforms, adding packages depending on the platform, do
custom stuff to compile gettext files, etc...
