Yes, it's a question of mirroring the setuptools magic name space merging
in our source analyser.  We already have code for that for Zope2 (which does
the same sort of thing), but need to add the setuptools-specific automagical
config detection part.

It's a bit sad to see setuptools do what Zope seems to have learned _not_
to do between Zope2 and Zope3 but OTOH it's not entirely nonsensical by
any means.

Fixing this is quite high on our priority list.
