New submission from Todd Schiller:

The lib2to3 library doesn't detect/apply any fixes if the source files aren't 
included with the distribution. See get_all_fix_names at

This affects Azure's official Python site extensions [1], which only include 
bytecode pyc's for the fixes [2].

This results in bad installs when using setuptools to install packages that 
leverage the use_2to3 flag during the install [3]
