Thanks for testing this and helping with the merge

This is a warning from distutils, so you would also see this on regular
ol' Python without setuptools installed. Likewise it should go away on
jython or pypy if they have setuptools or distribute installed.

Unfortunately I don't have a way around it since this is an argument to
setup. Most modern installations should have setuptools and can take
advantage of install_requires.

If it's a problem we could use 'warnings' to ignore it.
