This seems to be a well-designed solution that corrects the ad-hoc-
ness of installation while keeping its effects on existing tools

I hate those egg-info files but I would be very happy if they'd at
least always be in an accounted-for place.  Maybe I'd even consider
making use of them some day.

As for setuptools, I'm sure it will accommodate the change and
probably improve itself in the process.  (And if the setuptools
doesn't change then some other tool will grow into its niche; either
way it'd be an improvement.)
