An egg should only *depend* on setuptools if it uses things like

But there's no need to depend on setuptools for namespace packages
generally; that's specific to namespace packages in the presence of
zip_safe eggs.  This is where I get (somewhat) antsy.

That setuptools are required for *building* an egg goes without question.

That I've never objected to; I don't want to duplicate that functionality.
