Ha, I've been copying Twisted/Divmod's packaging structure for a long  
time, so this is right up my alley.

I think this is a great list. There's little I can think to add to  
it, except for one thing, and that's license information.

I think it's probably safe to say that a standard LICENSE file should  
go along with the README and setup.py

Any other thoughts?
