Ok, so create three tar files:

1. base.tar, containing

   simplistix/
   simplistix/__init__.py

2. addon1.tar, containing

   simplistix/addon1.pth (containing a single "*")
   simplistix/feature1.py

3. addon2.tar, containing

   simplistix/addon2.pth
   simplistix/feature2.py

Unpack each of them anywhere on sys.path, in any order.

Martin
