That's the issue. I would very much like to propose a follow-up patch,
but Robert has disagreed on its very principle, so I don't see a route
to have a validated patch. That is, unless some key core contributors to
PBR agree with me first.

Also, I don't think it is a good idea to carry a Debian specific patch,
and I would very much prefer gathering a consensus. Such consensus could
be along the lines of: we've failed to have this issue tackled in a
timely manner at the setuptools level, therefore it is time to act and
adopt the pragmatic solution.

I very much agree that it is more than time to have this problem solved.
Let's be constructive and fix the situation! Starting this thread was
definitively a very good idea, especially considering different people
have different opinions.
