Oh, this is where I always get scared because I always get lost. :)
The pkg_resources documentation is here:
You can probably create a Distribution object somehow (handwave) from a
path (whether that's the path of the package or the path the package is
in, not sure).
Then maybe 'get_metadata('long_description') on the distribution object,
but maybe not as one seems to have to supply metadata when constructing
But again, I always get lost here, perhaps you need an Environment or a
WorkingSet first, etc.
