Hmmmm. Looks like I may have been wrong, I've just done a bit of testing
and it seems that changing the version part of the package spec in
MODPY_SETUPUTILS_DEPEND actually does *not* require REVISION bumps for
dependent ports.

Here's the version using PKGSPEC, but from my newer testing I think that
this would be exactly equivalent to just changing MODPY_SETUPUTILS_DEPEND.




  PKGSPEC = ${MODPY_PY_PREFIX}setuptools->=18.2v0
