A PR that fixes the issue according to the feedback from Eryk Sun is available. 
It does seem to have stranded a bit on the review side. That being said, would 
a bugfix for shutil.rmtree be appropriate? It is very annoying when junction 
points made by other tools break pip source install of packages (since pip 
calls shutil.rmtree on its temporary directory after a build).
