I hadn't found the earlier message but I looked briefly at
setuptoolsbzr, but I decided not to experiment with it and ask for
experience of others.
my impression from a quick look at setuptoolsbzr:
https://lists.launchpad.net/launchpad-users/msg04492.html leaves it
unclear whether it actually works for this
it requires itself as an install dependency (not just a build dependency)
it hasn't been updated in a year
So I thought it's too risky to play with it, if there is any way of
avoiding the additional dependency.
Using MANIFEST.in seems to work and I even finally thought of looking
in the python docs for the format and command description.
Thanks, and thank you for the docstrings,
