See the twisted.python.dist module to understand installation process
for the twisted subprojects.
For real example check any plugin of the Twisted and make setup.py file
in  your own project directory.
Be careful, in the twisted subprojects  setup  modules is in the
topfiles directory. It necessary for the
twisted's release script, you don't need it if you plugin isn't under
twisted maintainence.
