I agree with Clark - and it seems you abandoned the patch - so awesome.

Additionally though - we discussed all the way back in Atlanta about
adding a feature to pbr to generate a static setup.py at sdist time, so
that pbr is a thing you only need if you're working from git ... which
means it might be a fun thing to rework your script into a pbr patch -
although obviously for a slightly different outcome.
