Its job is to register a setuptools plugin which writes extra 'egginfo':
 it therefore has to be used as a 'setup_requires' dependency (otherwise
you have to deal with obscure "first time" failures).  I think it would
make more sense to leave it around as a tiny dependency which we use
everywhere.  Making the testrunner smart enough to use the information
written by the plugin is probably more than my brain can cope with at
6:00 on a Friday evening. :)
