Oh, this is where I always get scared because I always get lost. :)

The pkg_resources documentation is here:

http://packages.python.org/distribute/pkg_resources.html

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 
a distribution..

But again, I always get lost here, perhaps you need an Environment or a 
WorkingSet first, etc.

Martijn
