I suspect it's fine ok for an egg-supporting setup.py to depend on
setuptools, though I'm wary of dependencies outside the Python
standard library and our own code for basics. Using zc.buildout
ensures setuptools is part of a buildout anyway, so I'll get over my
own little hangup pretty quickly.
An egg should only *depend* on setuptools if it uses things like
pkg_resources (e.g. for namespace packages). In that case even
zc.buildout yells at you for not depending on setuptools:
zc.buildout.easy_install: Develop distribution for kss.core
0.1dev-r37968 uses namespace packages but the distribution does not
That setuptools are required for *building* an egg goes without question.
