I would love to kill Provides-Dist. The biggest question there is how do you handle it's
functionality? If someone needs setuptools but they have distribute installed they
both shouldn't get installed.

The need for it for the "2 packages being distributed together" I'm (personally)
less concerned about since with proper dependency data we should be
able to just depend on things instead of bundling them.
