Adding the keyword does not break builds not using setuptools, the build 
just prints a warning that its not a valid keyword. I just discovered 
this is also an issue for scipy eggs when building with weave.

Perhaps the best solution is to complain to the setuptools list, I'm 
just looking for a quick fix for now.
