Well, if the main setup.py is a single call to distutils.core.setup()
then setuptools support comes more or less for free. easy_install has
no problem building distutils-based stuff, so long as it's not insane.

entry point support would require setuptools, but I'd be happy just to
have setup.py be sane so that Twisted could be listed as a dependency
by setuptools-using projects and installed with easy_install.
