So I see... especially the "every commit must have a .SRCINFO". I had
kind of sort of assumed you would push the PKGBUILD you finally settled
on as the initial PKGBUILD, but apparently you opted to preserve your
learning experience for eternity. :p

Unfortunately that won't work, since your learning experience included a
missing .SRCINFO which cannot be preserved. :D

Which manpage/wiki?

I guess it is sort of assumed that people won't uninstall setuptools --
it is part of the python package manager scene (distutils -> setuptools
-> pip) and in a way it sort of competes with pacman.
"The standard library is where modules go to die" but nevertheless, I am
pretty sure the setuptools developers would love to make sure everyone
always has it, no matter what.

But I will admit it wasn't obvious to me... until I learned the basics
of python module packaging.
