Now I wonder how those got there?!

Hah!  Thanks for sharing.  Very satisfying to actually make a *correct*
prediction about setuptools' behavior :)

This seems to be Apple's doing.  AFAICT, 10.12 is shipping with this
Extras.pth file in /Library/Python/2.7; it's something new.  And,
unfortunately, due to https://bugs.python.org/issue4865, the
site-packages directory for the system Python 2.7 is included in
sys.path along with the non-system framework Python site-packages.

Hrm.  I guess everyone I knew on the beta was using homebrew python :(.

I'm surprised that Apple is putting stuff in /Library.  I don't have a Sierra 
box handy - /Library isn't SIP-protected now, is it?

Nope, that's not a problem.

This seems wrong; someone should file a radar (and probably share on 
http://www.openradar.me for further discussion).

In the meantime, what's the recommended workaround?
