What if full replication requires a C extension module?

(I hope that's not true and that it is possible to reproduce the bug
using some fakes, but I haven't spent the time investigating this.)

That's like objecting if someone adds a .gitignore to a release branch.
Or a .travis.yml.  It's not code, it's metadata.

(I never liked setuptool's magic "let me query git to see what source
files you have, but not by default, oh no, instead let's assume
everybody has installed the non-standard plugin into their system
Pythons and then let's silently produce broken tarballs if they haven't,
because obviously implicit is better than explicit, and when there's
temptation the right thing is to guess" behavior anyway, and we
*definitely* don't want broken sdists on PyPI.)
