[SciPy-dev] setup.py vs. setup_foo.py

I think I've missed a conversation re: the CVS reorg.  I find it weird 
that there are setup_foo.py files in what (IMO) should be standalone 
modules/packages such as kiva, traits, chaco, freetype.

Furthermore, some modules have both (e.g. freetype, last time I checked).

Finally, is the scipy_distutils stuff which all of them require 
available in a separate module/package, and if not, anyone have any 
objection to making that separation.  I'm packaging something based on 
chaco, which has more or less natural dependencies on traits, kiva and 
chaco (and freetype, although I'm not 100% sure I understand the latter 
yet).  It's frustrating to have to tell people to install "scipy" just 
to get traits/freetype/kiva/chaco to build.

Cheers,
