I want to suggest two changes to the standard release process:

1. use "sdist --formats=zip". This works around a nasty bug in the
   python 2.4 tarfile module which makes it skip files with a
   path of a specific length. This can make a release impossible to use.

2. forbid the use of __file__ in setup.py. This breaks on systems
   which do not have setuptools installed globally but rely on a
   (zc.buildout-created) wrapper script. __file__ will point
   to the wrapper script in those instances, which breaks setup.py.
