The boilerpate Baiju is wondering about replacement shows how to do
non-setuptools "extensible" packages (quasi-namespaces).  Declaring the
dependency on setuptools is a bit silly, because only setuptools knows
about dependencies:  the only reason we declare it everywhere is to
appease zc.buildout.

I would leave the boilerplate alone, on the chance that it makes the
package usable via straight distutils.
