Yikes, I had hoped to avoid addressing that Nix issue and the humongous
"fix" for a while longer:

Okay, I'm happy to hear that it didn't work ;) My understanding is that
with the new python-build-system, packages are built with the setuptools
that comes with Python, not the external python-setuptools package.

Please let us know what you find.

Hartmut, any thoughts?

In any case, I think it's time to start working on a 'python-updates'
branch, which could include this patch.
