Not saying not to package it.  Right now, the issue seems to be it causes
dependency conflicts in emerge's depgraph parsing when PYTHON_TARGETS
includes python2_7 support.  Remove that and stick with python3_* only, then
other packages that need python2_7 will whine.

Did setuptools-45.0.0 remove all python2 support?  I looked at the commit
log, and it's only the title that any meaningful hint that it may have,
"dev-python/setuptools: Bump to 45.0.0 (py3 only)".  If it did, then that
change is the right change, but anyone with a userland that has a mix of
python2 and python3 is going to have difficulty getting that update to merge
in, so I really can't go higher than setuptools-44.0.0 for the time being.
