I understand that. But it must be possible to do that programatically in
my code. I mean, "setup.py --long-description" obviously executes Python
code, which I may be able to execute myself in my current interpreter
session by importing and executing stuff from setuptools. Having to
invoke another Python interpreter in a subshell because that's too
complicated to do any other way is awful.
