I suppose you meant: As runtime requires.
Yes, I meant that. I even had to double check to ensure that the fix was
correct. (BTW it was :-) )

Not needed. Upstream installs via pip. You already get pkg_resourcess
(setuptools) and no upstream has setuptools in their requires.
I suspected so but I was not sure and thus this thread.

If the auto generator is capable of seeing an console_script entry point
(hint, yes it is) they should add setuptools to the required packages.
We should open a RFE bug for this (on it).
I saw that already sent a fix for this issue. Thanks. :-)
