Toydist will not solve anything here. Versioning info is useless here
if it does not translate to compatible ABI. What is required is to be
able to identify a precise python ABI: python makes that hard, mac os
x harder, and universal builds ever harder. Things like PEP 384 may
help in the future -  As it is written by someone who actually knows
about this stuff, it will hopefully be useful.
