distutils sdist and MANIFEST files

Does anyone else find it annoying that the sdist command for distutils 
relies on MANIFEST.in and MANIFEST files?
I would really like to be able to do everything in the setup script ; if 
I don't, the MANIFEST files get created automatically (with warnings) 
and any new scripts added are forgotten.

Any alternative approaches to this?
