Could we remove in any case the wsgiref.egg-info file ? Since we've
been working on a new format for that (PEP 376), that should be
starting to get used in the coming years, it'll be a bit of a
non-sense to have that metadata file in the sdtlib shipped with 3,2

I am not really sure what was the intent to have it there in the first
place though.
